BEST goes digital

Just saw that BEST (local bus transport in Mumbai) has a website now. They have all the routes, maps, fares, timings etc. and also have a cool history page. Now all that is left is an online bus tracking system.

Staying on the topic of Mumbai, here is a nice aerial view of the heart of Mumbai. Click to enlarge & view the details. Link via Nandan.

Ever tried google earth? Or is it microsoft policy not to use google products?

And your point being?.....

No point, just wondering if you've ever used it. The "policy" comment was because another friend of mine who works in microsoft said he'd never used google earth simply because it was not a microsoft product.

Nikhil said...

Of course I've used it man. I started using it way before I joined MS.
And I am not aware of any Microsoft Policy about 3rd party software.

LOL
But you have to give it to Microsoft man.

This is way cooler than anything mappy Google has ever made.

I agree. Even the bird's eye view (for most cities) kicks ass.
