Tales from the Future

At the end of a recent picnic, the group of us decided to go to In-N-Out. I whipped out my phone and started fiddling with google map mobile. My girlfriends mom started to give directions to the restaurant, but after the third or fourth turn, everyone's eyes started to glaze over.

Her long winded directions bought me enough time to zoom in on our location, search for the In-N-Out they were talking about, and resize the map to just the right size to illustrate a super simple set of directions.

It'd really help once google map mobile can integrate GPS data.

Soon, there will be some people who grow up never knowing what it feels like to be lost.
