Before scaling and launching its new Campus Tel Aviv, Google had to try the concept in a city with few startups. But now Campus TLV has opened.
The city was London,England.
London’s population: over 8 million.
Tel Aviv’s: Less than half a million.
Google Maps developers just launched a drawing library for the Google Maps API, so that developers who build on Google Maps can add simple tools for users to draw markers, lines and shapes on to maps. Shapes can also be made editable, even once they’ve been placed on the map.
Applications can use drawings for selecting regions of the map to search or highlight, as well as for annotations. This simple interface offers a surprising range of features for developers building applications upon Google Maps.
“Google tests a new feature that replaces the URL with the site’s name in search results snippets.”
Also recall they are hiding the URL bar on Chrome. Something bigger is up.
