From my observation, most of the websites today embed Google Maps into their page of contact. And even most website templates have embedded Google Maps into their contact templates nowadays.
However, when Google Maps recently went through a change, it affected myself in getting the generate code to embed the map from Google Maps. At the time, the newly redesigned Google Maps didn’t have the option to generate the needed code until now.
So let’s go ahead and find out how to generate the map embed code with the new Google Maps.
One of the changes I noticed in the new embedded Google Maps now is the “bubble” has become a less intrusive square. Woohoo! And depending on your selected embed size, it’ll simplify the display of place information so the square would be even less intrusive. Woohoo!
Though I kinda wish there was an option to select what information I’d like to be made available in the square. 😐
It’s always exciting to have a product (no one has yet) to review. I still remember the day I got my iPhone 2G for review. It was awesome! Though the Lenovo V360 with Wimax-inside isn’t as small, I’m slowly but surely falling in love with it. Plus, it feels very light. Nearly made me want to do the Acer slim notebook ad. LOL!
Just like the iPhone reviews I’ve written, I’m not going to go technical because I’m not an engineer either. Instead, I’ll share with you my experience using the Lenovo V360 with Wimax-inside as any common user. So here’s the first experience.
Traveling with the Lenovo V360 and Wimax-inside
Today I had to travel to somewhere in Puchong to meet a potential client for my website design company; Simpleet. Normally if I had to drive to unfamiliar territory, I’d bring along my Garmin but not this time. And, I’m also any data plan yet. And GPRS or EDGE is just too f*cking expensive in Malaysia. So, no access to Google Maps too.
This was an ideal test for the Lenovo V360 with Wimax-inside since it was the only thing I could rely on, besides the crappy or non-existent road signs in Puchong.
Anyway, I plotted my course using Google Maps and loaded the directions up. I also preloaded it into my iPhone, though there’s no zooming into the map to double-check the roads I used or passed – no 3G, remember. So, off I went cruising to the person’s office.
Wimax on the go, baby!
I made my 1st pit stop nearby the Tractors Malaysia building to verify the road I needed to take. Right there and then, I was overjoyed to find the Wimax coverage right where I was. Plus, it had an excellent signal! So, I naturally fired up Tweetdeck to start tweeting. 😉
Safe to say, I made it to the person’s office. And there was even Wimax coverage in Puchong Utama! Woohoo! I had to squeeze the few minutes while I was there for a SpeedTest and this was the results.
Not bad. Not bad, at all. But seriously, thanks to Wimax and the coverage it had in Puchong, I made it safely and punctually to the person’s office. 🙂
