    Track Santa with Google Maps Mobile

    Advertisement



    An article on PC World has some geeky ways to track Santa this year. Aside from Norad's standard Track Santa web page which has been around for years, you can now track Santa with Google Maps Mobile on your BlackBerry!

    If you don't already have Google Maps on your BlackBerry (is there anyone that doesn't?), just go to http://www.google.com/gmm and get it - OTA of course.

    Now fire it up, select Search Map from the menu, and enter norad santa. You'll be brought to Santa's current location with a cute little Santa icon!


    If you hit [Enter] and go to the Details tab and click on the Learn More link, you'll be taken to Google in your BlackBerry's Browser for the current location.

    It appears that Google has taken over all the mapping for Santa, and aside from the Norad map, you can also track it with a Google Earth plug-in, as well as get Tweets on Twitter from @noradsanta.

    It's nice to see Santa's keeping up with technology!
