Imagine that you’re headed out on a road trip with a paper
map in hand. First you find your starting point, and then by
unfolding and flipping the map around (trying not to whack
the driver in the face), you figure out your route, if you’re lucky.
Today, electronic maps make life much easier. When you open
the Maps app, you can zoom in and out to get more or less
detail with a click, quickly find your current location, and then
move the map around to find nearby locations with a simple
click and drag action.
