An Interior Google Maps Streetview Look At Automattic’s Lounge

While everyone at Automattic works from home, we do have a lounge in San Francisco for hosting the local employees as well as hosting various events. We recently finished working with a photographer to get interior views of it up on Google Maps. Check it out!

You can click to move around our lounge and even go upstairs! Very cool.

It’s normally pretty empty like that but we completely filled the place about a month ago during our full company grand meetup:


Google Maps For iOS Is Amazing

The new Google Maps app is simply amazing, by far the best mobile map app that I’ve used even if you take accuracy off the table. I used it this morning and its vocal driving directions are actually better than Apple’s app. They give more detail in road names and things like that and honestly I think the voice is better and more natural too. If you have an iPhone and haven’t tried it out, you really need to. The Verge has a good write-up about what’s new.
