    Darkilla: In short, NS is pretty much really fast chess. With guns. Apophis: I haven't seen anyone say that SM's are better than non-SMs. Nordbomber: This is THE first server I've seen where either side can comeback from out of seemingly nowhere with the right teamwork. en4rcment: I have NEVER experienced the type of gameplay that I have found here. Nightly I am amazed at the personalities and gaming talent. Zephyr: Apophis is clearly a highly sophisticated self-aware AI construct that runs on a highly modified toaster oven in Wyzcrak's basement.

    Long video, but that app looks VERY sweet.. I can't wait to start playing with it!

    I think the biggest value I will have in that app is EXACTLY the scenario they described. Going on a business trip and wanting to locate nearby coffee shops, restaurants, parking, etc. Being able to pan around the maps and having those queries update on the fly will make it an awesome tool.
    Diplomacy is the art of saying "good doggie" while looking for a bigger stick.

      I don't know if you guys have heard of Keyhole, but they were acquired by Google somewhat recently... I'm much more likely to buy this type of product/service from Google than from Microsoft.

      Interesting to me was one of the first things that Google did upon acquiring Keyhole:

      You can try Keyhole for a week for free. It's not quite like the Microsoft product, but you can type an address and Keyhole will zoom to it. I can't wait to see Google Maps and Keyhole integrated...

      Speaking of Google Maps, I just read a funny article about what will pop up if you search for "YourCity Crack House" or "YourCity brothel". Try it out for your town and see if it's amusing.
