New Google Maps interface

Improved keyword search, better directions for all transit modes and new imagery of more places

After working in a "preview" mode for nearly a year, the newest version of Google Maps on the web is rolling out to all users worldwide. The new interface is just a little simpler and more streamlined, making it easier to simply search by keyword and find what you need to find. You can perform basic searches for locations, food or services and get a detailed map overview along with recommendations based on your profile for what you'd be most likely to want.

Of course the best-in-class directions for driving, walking and public transit are still here as well, now with the power of better algorithms and traffic data behind them. You can find the most efficient route along with the shortest and fastest routes, and with real-time traffic reports you have a better idea of exactly how long it will take you to arrive in the real world.

Street View has also been expanded to stitch together more user-submitted photos, giving you a look at places where Street View cameras may not have made their way yet. When you get into Street View mode, you'll now see a "carousel" of images at the bottom of the screen you can search through — it's extra useful when you want to check out a landmark or a business before you leave on a trip.

Apple Launches Web Tool to Deregister Phone Numbers from iMessage

Apple today released a new web tool for users to deregister their phone number from iMessage in the event they switched to a non-Apple device. To deregister a phone number from iMessage, users simply enter their phone number in Apple's web tool, receive a free text message containing a code, and submit the code to complete the process. Users who still have their original iPhone can also transfer their SIM card back to the device and go to Settings -> Messages to turn iMessage off. 


Users switching from an iPhone to another device were often unable to receive SMS messages from another iPhone due to their phone number still being linked to iMessage. These specific errors with iMessage have been a well-known issue since 2011, which is when the messaging service debuted with iOS 5. They were also made even more apparent this past May, where a server glitch caused widespread message delivery problems. Apple was even sued over the matter in a California court, although the company cla…

"Our goal is to deliver fantastic cross-platform apps that support the variety of email services people use today and help them accomplish more." Recode first reportedthat Microsoft would make its latest acquisition official today; the company is said to be paying over $200 million for Acompli.
