One Does not Simply Walk into Mordor

The Google Maps team have a history of hiding little Easter eggs in the directions service of Google Maps.

In the past these Easter eggs have taken the form of suggestions to either jet ski (step 42) or kayak (step 15) across seas and oceans.

This latest Easter egg however takes the form of some handy advice that 'One does not simply walk into Mordor'.

Google Maps is Watching You

Funny or Die have created a cautionary video warning of the dangers of the Google Street View car. It tells the tale of one man's unlucky experiences of being caught out by Street View every time he decides to do wrong.

Make Your Own Heat Map of the World's Airports has created a Fusion Table of airports worldwide. If you open the Fusion Table you can visualise the data on a Google Map to create this nice heat map of airports around the world.
