Google brings indoor Maps to Germany, says more Euro expansion to come


Not many would argue that Google's indeed quick to bring its latest and greatest software creations to many folks around the globe. More specifically, the Mountain View-based company announced today that its handy indoor Maps are now available in Germany, giving people there the ability to easily find their way around airports, shopping centers and even museums -- much like those in the UK and US have been able to do for some time now. According to Google, the indoor Maps availability in Germany solidifies its plan to "focus on our users in Europe," where the overall coverage "will be expanded and fast."

Edgar began hitting newsrooms at a young age, ever since his dad worked at a news publication. It was then that his love for technology started. Growing up, he had two passions: gadgets and football (soccer). When he wasn't on the pitch scoring hat-tricks, he could be found near his SNES or around the house taking things apart. One bragging right he's proud of is how he was once the highest ranked FIFA 11 player -- unfortunately, that's no longer the case. He lives in New York City with his better half.
