This is both interesting and funny - in a recent blog post in blogoscoped (a leading blog on google) we were featured - mainly about our technology and content partners. I told them that one of the annoying things about Google is that many maps are in the local language and not in english - so we didn’t even include the Thailand map in TripTouch for example - it was all in Thai. The fun part is that just yesterday google has changed that and added English to all their maps (or at least some of them - we’ll need to check and see which maps are worthy). You can read all about this in that blog post - make sure you read the update at the end.
Good on ye’ Google!
