Google Maps 6.0 for Android adds Indoor Maps
The minor updates include a new dropdown menu, which allows you to quickly switch between the different sub-apps of Google Maps like Navigation, Places, Latitude, Places, Location History, and My Places, and a new Places homescreen, which includes popular searches to make finding things easier.
Of course, this update is Android only. And, while there's no real reason why Indoor Maps couldn't be cross-platform eventually, they are showing up only on Android right now, not even on the web.

For the men: A women's brain, for the women: a man's brain. The critical difference? Clothes and beer+sandwhichs. Can we map the rest?

First you have to locate the "man's brain" - and I'll leave you to guess where to find it...

ooh.. the google moon one was pretty cool. I couldnt find any transformer wrecks though by the Apollo landers. :)
mars one was kind of a let down. same photo just run over n over again. :(
i knew the oceans got done.. that was like maps 3.0 or 4.0 wasnt it?
HEY!! the moon one is the same.. they only show a small part of the moon, replayed over n over n over again. WTH!! Maybe there really is an alien robot ship crash landed on the dark side? lol

This is awesome all by itself. Even more awesome because the latest Apple rumor on its next service was a map service that would do this, and now Google is like \"haha, in b4 Apple.\" :D

So. When I make a joke and you bitch about it and I clue you in that it\'s a joke, you claim that I\'m backpedaling or whatever... but I\'m suddenly supposed to be A-okay with whatever insults you want to come up with, so long as you claim you\'re joking?

ok Sniggly it seems that you are not ok... talk to me.. tell me your feelings... in 10 words or less..

Here it is in two words: double standards.
