Google Maps envelope

Clever idea. Click here to lean out to make your Google Maps printout into an envelope.  (To snail-mail your directions, geddit?) In other Maps news, there is now a Labs feature to try cool stuff that may or may not break.

NSFW: Stalking the Google Street View car

Some guys in Berlin saw the Google Street View car and decided to stick a GPS unit on it, and they’re following it around.  Or at least they were.  They are tweeting here. You’re supposed to be able to follow them here, but site access is a bit dodgy.  Here is some video from earlier. (When you turn up the sound, be warned that the Germans are using rather colorful language and gestures, not to mention walking around with their pants around their ankles.  I must admit I don’t get the German sense of…humor.)
