The Daily Ping

There were rumors of a Ping book, but those were started on the internet.

Google Street View

Google Street View really is a game-changer. If you’re thinking about moving somewhere and want to get a good everyday view of the area (or, more specifically even, the street where you’d be moving to), loading up Google Street View can let you see that what looked like nice “green space” in a satellite photo is actually an abandoned, neglected park. Or if you’ve ever wanted to visit an infamously “rough” area of the city, now you don’t have to buy drugs to do it! You can let the Google Street View van do it for you. And save yourself plane fare: just visit faraway lands from the comfort of your office chair!

Google Street View also makes amazing blogs like 9-eyes.com possible.

Seriously, though. It’s cool and the us of ten years ago would be pretty amazed at how cool it really is.

What is this then?

The Daily Ping is the web's finest compendium of toilet information and Oreo™® research. Too much? Okay, okay, it's a daily opinion column written by two friends. Did we mention we've been doing this for over ten years? Tell me more!
