Two quick notes about the wonderful Google Maps:
1. They just got new satellite pictures for the Kitchener-Waterloo area (plus more perhaps). The new photos zoom into the highest resolution possible. Since it's not too wise to give out too much personal info online I won't post a link to our house. But I will to our previous one :)
2. There is an awesome app called Gmaps Pedometer that uses Google Maps to track how long trips are. Perfect for runners, hikers or, like me, cyclists. I used it today to shave 500m off my bike into work. The app also as an elevation map so you can see how steep of a climb various parts of your trip will be.
