Where am I, Google? →
Google has released a fascinating new feature for its mobile maps application called “my location.” I downloaded the new version of Google Maps for mobile tonight and tried it out. It wasn’t quite as accurate as a GPS, but was only off by about 200 yards. Not bad.
Checking out new google mobile maps. Not completely accurate, but very close.

Interface design survey →
The Art Institute of Atlanta is conducting an interesting survey about interface preferences on the web. The survey consists of 10 questions that simply require you to click on your preference. I found the results pretty similiar with my own guesses of the survey, but I was wrong on one of them - the color question. Link (via CSS Beauty)

Jive Talk →
I’ve been using Jive Talk for a few weeks on my Blackberry when I’m not in front of my computer and I want to ask a colleague a question (this usually means I’m in a meeting, training or otherwise occupied). Jive Talk connects to several chat clients at the same time much like Trillian (for PCs) or Adium (for Macs). I use it to connect to my Google Talk and AIM accounts and it is seemless. ...

Getting Flocked →
I downloaded Flock over the weekend and plan on kicking the tires for a few weeks to see if I like it. Flock is a browser based on the Mozilla FireFox browser (that you all should be using by now because it contains vitamins and minerals and buttery goodness and it works on lots of operating systems out there). Flock does something FireFox doesn’t. It connects people to their social networks...
