If you are in Beijing you’ll find new map kiosks on the street. The one pictured above was right outside the Beijing Hilton, my hotel. The kiosk helps you do a Business search, get directions, zoom in/out, and locate yourself. After Google’s done with putting maps in gas stations perhaps we’ll get kiosks from them.
You can’t tour Beijing without seeing construction for the Olympics. I hope that improvements like this are maintained after sports event has come and gone. I also hope that the Seattle City government sees these and decides that they are a good idea.
