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

    With all the rumor of Apple supposedly throwing Google Maps overboard in favor of it's own mapping acquisitions, Google Inc is poised to launch something exciting and new in Google Maps June 6 at 9:30AM. Some are speculating that it could be "3D views" and that sounds like a pretty sound theory seeing that Maps is currently operating in the 2D realm. Google is taking a pretty aggressive stance on this one seeing that Apple's WWDC will be happening just under a week later. This will be a good one to watch thats for sure.

    I'll be watching this. I love Google maps. Free live traffic, updated maps. This is why I don't use a standalone gps anymore even thought I sell them at Best Buy every day :D

    I'm pretty convincing when it comes to selling them. Most of the time it's older people who get a GPS but even people with smartphones get them. Mainly so they can use their phone for other things instead of having it tied up as their gps.

    I use Pandora while running navigation and still take calls all over Bluetooth in my 2012 Outback. Multitasking is what android is all about ;)
