SimCity Minus The Game

Google Maps + GPS + iPhone is a toolset I cannot live without, especially here in New York where a man’s sense of direction is tested every time someone suggests going to a restaurant outside of the neighborhood. It’s also a demonstrable skill women find inherently attractive in men. No joke.

Using the combined prowess of what I imagine to be many engineers/mad-scientists, Google has unveiled Google Earth 3D, starting with Gear Patrol’s own New York City, no less. Amazingly, you can see nearly every structure in eye-tantalizing 3D. This, combined with the recent unveiling of SimCity for the iPhone (fist-pump), will satisfy any man’s delusions of a mayoral candidacy.
