Latitude breaks balls

You n00btards will never understand me !! The USS Google is on a maptastic voyage to crush all before us and one of my drones (#8872) just pointed out that Latitude doesn't just kill Burnt Out Eagle but a slew of other sites. Goodbye loopt. Goodbye whrrl. Goodbye WHERE...

Uncle Ed doesn't have the time to list them all. I've told Marissa that from now on we only launch products if they meet the following criteria:

  • It's a cool idea !!
  • We helped someone do it (e.g. they're using ol' Ed's maps)
  • We can track them, usage, users, uptake... (e.g. they're using ol' Ed's maps)
  • We invite them in to the 'plex, distract them with free ice cream and suck out all the useful IP they have.. .. and then mention we had those ideas all along !!
  • We can kill at least 20 startups, not for profits, charities and cute little kittens who have built something similar
Ol' Ed calls this the 'platial model'. Watch out for more 'platial model' product launches from us soon !!

Sent using time compression waves from the future.
