Come Fly With Me... the Air Google Way
By Naseem Javed Founder, ABC Namebank International | May 04, 2010
Silicon Valley's current enfants terrible - Google's brilliant duo -- have given the global populace wings to soar over towns and cities, and the flights include everything except peanuts. Fasten your seat belts.
Consider these two observations:
First, every half century or so, advertisers accidentally tumble onto a new idea that makes the entire industry go bonkers for a decade or so -- like neon lights, gigantic high-resolution billboards or Web sites.
Second, every half century or so, consumers get a break that revolutionizes their daily lives -- like the light bulb, the credit card, the Internet -- and now, Air Google. Aha! Bring your seat to an upright position.
From Flat-Screen Surfing to Three-Dimensional-Flying
Giving consumers the tools for aerial scanning and three-dimensional mapping of the world -- allowing them to fly by their neighborhoods or make a detailed inspection of far away places -- is radical. That's what Google Local and similar services -- which I'm referring to collectively as "Air Google" -- do through satellite image maps that provide a bird's-eye view of just about anyplace.
