Apple's North Carolina Data Center on Google Maps

"While most of the mystery of Apple's North Carolina data super center comes from the fact that we're still not really sure what Cupertino will be using it for, let's not underestimate another contributing factor to the intrigue: the fact that Apple's Maiden, North Carolina data center appears as a big, gaping hole in the Earth under Google Maps. But no longer!"

It had been under cloud cover at Apple's request, so now that the WWDC is less than a week away, Google was given the go ahead to unveil it to the world. Ok. Big white building. But we now know that it does exist.

MobileMe and Google Maps Integration for Contacts

"Over the last couple of months, MobileMe has gotten faster and shinier, gained that promised file-sharing feature, and, arguably, evolved into an integral service. Apple announced many of these updates and fixes on its MobileMe News blog, and now it's highlighting one of MobileMe's clever, albeit unsung, features: Google Maps integration."

I have no idea how long its been working, but the MobileMe blog came out with an article on it about 3 days ago. It actually does work pretty slick. When you get the popup window, you can view the map in a variety of ways, however you can't use the zoom feature, yet anyway. But if you do want to zoom in, clicking on the bottom of the map at the "Open in Google Maps" will open up the map in, where else, Google Maps.
