Say hello to Gutsy Gibbon

Today is the day many people were waiting for. Ubuntu 7.10 codename Gutsy Gibbon was released, with several improvements. Ubuntu for those who don’t already know it, it’s a Linux Distro for Humans, which means that even you who don’t know much about computers can use it. It’s totally free and runs on Pcs and Mac. So if you are up to the challenge, you can Download the .ISO file from here, request by mail or just upgrade.
If you’re interested, I’ve selected some links for you:

Google Maps launches Mapplets

Google Maps has launched today a new feature called Mapplets (Map + Applets ^^), which makes you able to insert layers with many different information into your maps, like crime rates, building prices, transit maps, area calculator(thats a nice one), and much more.
Mapplets are now available at the “My Maps” tab, where you click in “Add content” to see them all. After adding some “Mapplets”, you’ll see them placed on the left menu interface. I’ve places on this post a Mapplets demonstration made from Google. Enjoy! 🙂
