Google 3D maps

Google; they’re always finding new ways to improve their products. The latest update from them is their photo tours.  According to the video, when you click on a landmark within Google maps, there’s a photo that will pop up.  If there’s a link that says, ‘Photo Tour’ underneath the image, click through and it will take you through a 3D tour of the spot.  However, thanks to TechCrunch, they were able to provide us with a link of current places that have this feature enabled.


Facebook + Windows








If you’ve got a Windows phone, we’ve got some good news. Facebook announced that new changes to the layout, appearance, and functionality will be updated for Windows phones.  What’s nice to hear is that they incorporated a lot of the changes that Users wanted to have in this update.  It’s in the final stages of testing and will be rolled out in the near future. Changes are great; especially when it’s the ones we want!








We just discovered Twylah here and are excited about this new platform. It takes your twitter feeds and creates a web site out of it! As of right now it’s in the beta stage and is invite only. Yes, it’s another digital tool but part of staying current is finding out what the latest and greatest is.
