    This is a cool feature. Google stay innovating. I wonder how GPS is going to work inside buildings using this. Unless they use aGPS to triangulate. Also, I wonder how they determine the altitude to know which floor someone is located.

    So far it's only these places, which is still pretty awesome. I'm sure they'll add more as they find em.
