1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Cool I'm in. We use Maps, Street View, Navigation, and Latitude, a lot. I always like seeing updates for those apps.

    The ironic thing about the link is that the "request for invite" button wouldn't work using chrome on my phone. Let's hope it isn't a sign about the functionality of the new maps..lol.

    Received an invite to the new Maps yesterday. Tried to install and got the message that its not compatible with my browser.. Needed to use Chrome, Firefox, Safari6+ and IE10+. Went to Playstore and grabbed Chrome, tried again, same error message. Clicked on their link to Chrome and error 40?, server not found..... Back to Playstore, grabbed Firefox same scenario. Using a Galaxy Nexus running Paranoid Android.

    Never mind, just tried again. Apparently, I missed something yesterday and I was able to install tonight.

    Got mine. Tried on Phone. No worky even with Chrome.
    Tried it on the laptop. WOW! Very nice. I like it.

    Few problems though. When you go to TILT which basically switches to Google Earth... Cleveland is flat and you can't see skyscrapers. Checked around, Pittsburgh is too. Checked Boston which is what they use in the tutorial, looks fine. Checked NYC to make sure I wasn't doing something wrong. Looks fine.
    Can someone check PITTS or CLE for me and report back? Double-check that it isn't me or my equipment.

    Sent Feedback.
    It is pretty cool otherwise.
