Google MyMaps Gets Additional Functionality [uk.reuters.com]
I wonder in few years from now if people would type in into Gooogle, questions like: "Where is my lost wallet?" and G tells you where it is and gives you a driving map.
1-10 of 10,000 possible locations :)

- Google earth can see a small barbeque pit in my backyard with its free version, paid an military versions can apparently spot a dime in deep grass or body heat signatures through my roof.
- A forest fire can be tracked to a cigarette by reviewing the satelite images back in time to the origins of the fire.
- My cat has a small chip in his neck in case he gets lost, for 15 a month I can register him to keep track of where he is.
- its possible to lace human blood with a specific frequency of radioactive material that causes no ill effects and can be easily tracked.
Thats just a small part of what we know about, yes sir, losing your wallet can be a thing of the past but not until someone figures out a socialy acceptable way of profiting from it.
One blood cell among millions. Tracking is no longer an issue. Everything can be mapped! I can't wait to see live user maps and see what people will track. I imagine roaches and rats, birds, a toy boat in a waterway.... who knows what else.
What might make live maps impossible is unfortunately politics. Knowing where all of the worlds armaments, tanks etc are from any laptop isn't something leaders would be ok with I don't think.
