Updated Google Maps Integrates Google Earth and a Slew of Awesome Features
by Meghan Neal
Google's annual developer conference, Google I/O, just wrapped up for the afternoon in San Francisco, but not before introducing dozens of new features that promise the future of technology.

Check out an interview with the lead designer via TechCrunch for more details, or see for yourself in the preview version here and in this video:
