Google Maps and iPhoto (Yawn)

Filed under: Uncategorized — geoLibro @ 12:52 am

So everyone is aflutter about the Google Maps/iPhoto integration recently discovered within the iPhoto package. Ed Parsons discusses it, as does OgleEarth, and MactelChat. There’s even a MAKE entry that points to a YouTube how-to video. Oh, and the obligatory Digg entry. Let me spare you the trouble of visiting this last one:

1stParty: Good job, Apple.
2ndParty: <sarcasm>Well if Apple did it, it must be good.</sarcasm>
3rdParty: Can we not do this, please?
4thParty: Why don’t you both just use Ubuntu?

…and so on.

Anyway, it seems like weak news to me. Maybe it’s a harbinger of big things to come, but if everybody was already using Craig Stanton’s Geotagger or GPS Photo Linker you may be so busy tagging your photos and emailing shareable kmzs that you can’t bring yourself to care about a little gray button.

Besides, do people still care about Google Maps? They’re so…flat.
