Google maps would have had trouble existing in 1997, but more interestingly, how do you think Google maps have declined over the past decade?

The thing they broke in the past year was the feature in the web browser to always display traffic.

Now they have decided it is something you have click on every singe you interact with the map.

I live in Canada (near the border), I have P.O. Box on the U.S. side and I have a bank account in a U.S. bank. I had no trouble opening it, and I use it to pay for many purchases I make from the U.S. (I can often get much better travel deals through sites like Priceline when I use a credit card with a U.S. billing address.)

So, I don't know what difficulty you're alluding to.

Interesting statement considering that U.S. banks don't allow accounts to be set up with PO Box addresses.

Dead? No excuse for laying off work.
