Google Maps Street View Update

Very cool updates from Google Maps for Street View this morning – I think the new interface is easier to use. RWW and other blogs are already reporting this welcoming update. While I still think that the Virtual Earth Bird’s Eye View (yes, I’m still a bit biased) is richer with visuals when you are trying to get a sense of the physical world around a given location – the quality of Google’s Street View is definitely getting better and better.

I still have to give this a try on my iPhone though, but Mike seems to think it’s cool!

Quick question: I wonder if anyone has tried using Google’s Street View for store-front photo view – if the coverage is good, I would love to give it a try on Center’d business profiles – any thoughts?

Vote for Center’d!

And you thought we are done with elections? 🙂 Nah, there is one more reason to vote today – Center’d made it to the top 10 finalists in the Mashable Open Web awards under “Places and Events” category – and guess what – every vote counts! Please vote for Center’d today and thank you so much for your votes from the previous round!

Thanks again for your vote!

Nominate Center’d for Mashable Open Web Awards!

I have been so busy building cool stuff at my beloved company these days and I barely get any time to blog 😀 – but will fix that in coming days.

Talking about Center’d, just this morning I came across an interesting poll from Mashable re: open web awards and thought it would be cool to nominate Center’d in “Places and Events” category. Here is a blurb from Mashable regarding this poll:

Open Web Awards is the only multilingual international online voting competition that covers major innovations in web technology. Through an online nominating and voting process, the Open Web Awards recognizes and honors the top achievements in 26 categories. This year, we’re partnering with over 100 blog partners, Poll Daddy for extra security and ease of voting and extending the nominations period and voting rounds for greater participation.

So, if you are a Center’d user and if you like what we do with the cool integration of local, social and activity planning – pl. submit your nomination for our company below.

And if you haven’t been using Center’d – give it a try or if you don’t like something you see on our site, let us know at or just email me at

Thanks in advance for your help! 🙂
