Yahoo! maps, Google maps, Mapquest hit Saturday Night

Yahoo! maps, Google maps, Mapquest featured on SNL... nice plug for geospatial last week as the map search engine leaders get a nice plug by the crew of SNL in a skit..
SNL cast members Chris Parnell and Andy Samberg walk and rap through the streets of the Big Apple and feature the map engines in an amusing context... some details from the script...
They're rapping about where to see The Chronicles or Narnia
Chris: Let's hit up Yahoo Maps to find the dopest route.

Chris: Tru dat!
Andy and Chris: Double True!
The words "Double True" appear in Google colors.

Millennium Plus operates using an innovative hybrid of technologies, including GPS satellites and patented microburst cell technology. Each time you communicate with the transceiver in the vehicle, there is a two way flow of information.

* When accessing Millennium Plus via the Internet using any standard browser, you send out a signal. That signal then travels to the cell phone tower nearest your current location.

* Microburst technology operates on existing cellular networks to send and receive data packets, tapping into unused channels on the back side of standard cell frequencies.

* The GPS satellites then locate and communicate with the Millennium Plus transceiver on board your vehicle, which exchanges information on location and speed, as well as executing any commands you've sent.

* The cell towers then relay the signal back to you via the exact means by which it was sent.
