The big, still-in-Beta Google Maps overhaul brought a bunch of new shiny stuff, from its new fullscreen interface to drastically improved public transportation integration. If Google is aware of an upcoming flight, hotel, or restaurant reservation on your schedule, that data will now be pulled straight into Maps whenever you’re signed in. Searching for “SFO”, for example, would trigger a drop down list with your upcoming flight’s details. You’ll probably want all that data before you find yourself searching for directions to the airport - but when the taxi driver asks “Which airline?” and you realize you’ve completely forgotten, keep that one up your sleeve. Lastly, Google Maps is also now piping in data about upcoming events in a given area or at specific venues. Search for “music venues” and it’ll plot out music venues in the currently shown region and toss up a smattering of upcoming shows. Search for a specific venue - like, say, the Oakland Coliseum (Go A’s!) - and they’ll try to dig up everyone who’s playing there in the next few weeks. Get the full story at TechCrunch
