Of course, in order to get any good out of this, you need to be the owner of a portable internet device, which to some of us poorer plebians still seems like out-of-reach magic. Not a day goes by where I don't need access to some information but I'm completely cut off. Grrrrr.

First, why do you feel that you are entitled to this feature? You act as if you're being ripped off, even though you had no idea this thing even existed yesterday, and it's completely free.

Second... you're incorrect. Google Maps is available on any kind of computer. PC or Mac, desktop or laptop or phone, this feature is available to everyone.

edit: oh wait, maybe I misinterpreted your comment. So you're upset that being a desktop-only person, you can't use it while in traffic the way that an iPhone user could? That's a little weird too... it's like complaining that Verizon started offering extra TV channels when you don't even own a TV.

Correct. And I'm not upset that this service is now available; I'm ecstatic. I'm upset that I don't have an iPhone or similar device. Sigh. Someday.....

 If you have one, don't take it for granted. So many people already do. To people like me, you're a goddam sorcerer.
