    They'll need to be careful with their Google+ integration. Maps has an effective monopoly - integrating Google+ preferentially over other social networks is classic anticompetitive practice. Reply

    What is with this anti-competetive/monopoly nonsense lately. God forbid Google make a product, then integrate its use in their other products. The idea that a company needs to advertise or use third party solutions is utterly nonsensical. Reply

    "Interstellar" Accuracy? What, it has a resolution of a few light-years now? And why does the article not discuss accuracy with a single word after that kind of headline? Reply

    Well, it's supposed to be funny for starters, and it refers to the accuracy of the real-time cloud and planetary data. Reply

    "Getting directions to a place has also been streamlined...using an intuitive UI...to plan trips with granular precision."

    Just a small example, but either Saumitra has a very polished marketeers voice in his prose, or Google's actual marketing copy is encroaching too far into what should be an impartial article.

    Maybe Saumitra just needs a Dictionary? He may be of the opinion that the self-standing use of the phrase "granular precision" actually carries information. Reply

    I just used that phrase in a report I was writing this morning.

    "The granularity of results using the available search parameters allowed for quicker access to relevant information than was possible while using XXXXX."

    I don't know how self-standing his phrase was, but it isn't uncommon when discussing information systems to refer to granularity and search in the same sentence.
