Google previews new personalized Google Maps

Google spoke about a new Google Maps at Google I/O earlier today, one that would offer a different mapping experience to its users. The company took to the stage to preview the new Google Maps that has the capability to customize itself depending on the user. Google says that the map can highlight specific areas that are important to the user.

"Like a friend drawing you a map to her favorite restaurant, with only the roads and landmarks you need to get there, the new Google Maps instantly changes to highlight information that matters most," Google said. The map will also get better as the user interacts more with it. "When you set your Home and Work locations, star favorite places, write reviews and share with friends, Google Maps will build even more useful maps with recommendations for places you might enjoy," it added.

Searching has been improved as well. Search results are now directly displayed on the map, each with complete descriptions and information. It can even display recommended places by your friends on Google+. The new Google Maps is still in beta, but Google is now accepting early users via invites on its new page.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
