Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)Why Google’s Big Conference Will Be Quieter This Year (Wired)
Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG)’s annual developer conference, I/O, kicks off with a high-profile keynote presentation this morning. But don’t expect Google to try and make big waves, because the company has said it will back off releasing new products this year – and because Google I/O launches have gone so terribly in the past.

New Version of Google Maps Leaked Online (PC Magazine)
The new Google Maps seems to incorporate data from your Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) account to highlight areas and locations that are important to you. In addition to the automated location curation, the new maps also appears to add Google Flight Search into the traditional Google Maps product, allowing users to easily plan trips directly from the normal Google Maps screen rather than visiting a separate site. Perhaps the most interesting feature, though, is the inclusion of Google Earth as an option. This is a combination many fans of Google Inc (NASDAQ:GOOG) Maps have wanted for some time, but up until now the most realistic topographic images offered by Google Maps have been Street View and the satellite viewing option.
