I don't know if it's related but since the beginning of the week, Google Maps is longer to load, and the "for mobile" layer is loaded and displayed before the usual map layer. Do you get that bug too?

They need to get rid of the kinetic scrolling on non-mobile versions of Maps. There's too much hysteresis, which gives the annoying impression that the map is moving when it shouldn't be (i.e., after I've stopping scrolling and I'm trying to read it).

Sometimes the lack of basic understanding of how technology works is just appalling. Those politicians who fear new technologies are usually quick to jump into wrong conclusions.

Oh man, it sucks to be a German :-)

Google is really starting to become the company we love to hate.
