Today, just for fun, I tried finding out the places I know in Google Earth. It’s remarkably easy because unlike the last time I tried, the resolution has increased a lot. The map overlay helps too but it’s easy enough finding it through the satellite imagery. One problem is that most of Kerala is heavily wooded and the greenery obscures a lot of detail.
So this is the MobME office. The hexagon shaped building & the water tower is hard to miss from above.
And this is where we stay – Tata Green Acres, Kochi. The bright blue water in the picture is our swimming pool 🙂
And this is where my house is in Trivandrum – I really can’t find the exact spot because of all those woods.
The new Panoramio integration is really cool btw – lots of photos everywhere I travel. (rediscovered via @google at Twitter. So do follow)
This is cool and I’d seriously buy one. Just $99!
IPhoto ’09’s face tagging is really cool. It automatically outlines faces in photos and once I correctly tag a few, it magically guesses the rest!
This is a bit corny, but I end up using the Book of Answers a bit nowadays. I bought it initially as a gift but then somehow never ended up giving it away. The idea is simple, just ask a question and then open the book. I think it tickles my reading genie and my romantic. There’s something weirdly comforting about holding that book in your hands and thinking that it’s got all the answers.
