Ask Maps

I must say that after Ask Jeeves “let go” their butler. has added some cool features. One of them being their maps. I know I’m a huge fan of google and their google map interface, but one of the standout things with Ask is the fact that you can differentiate directions between driving and walking.

So in heavily urbanized areas and main cities this is quite useful, since not everyone needs to drive. It also gives you a more accurate estimate as to how long the walk will take.

You also have the ability to play a walk/drive through which traces through the path it provides step by step. Like google’s map it also provides an aerial view as well as a hybrid view.

It was definitely a ton of fun, just like playing the Recorder. I remember it was the cool instrument to upgrade to. You see, in Kindergarten you started with the Recorder and you played it throughout elementary school. When you reached grade 3 they started teaching the Ukulele to you. It was the move from the Recorder to the Ukulele that made it cool.

I’m pretty impressed with Paul Haggis. He’s had an interesting journey through entertainment and Hollywood. Most recently picking up the Best Picture award for his film Crash.

He scores points in my book since he’s an ex-pat Canadian.  In addition to that he scores massive points for his ability to churn out films like Crash, and last year’s Million Dollar Baby.

However let me unwind him a bit for you.
