Google Maps Envelope

Google Maps Envelope

Where Snail Mail Meets Email

First the search engine, then email, maps and Earth. Google continues its path to worldwide domination and ultimate coolness with Google Maps Envelopes. Now, after your assistant types up your email (on Gmail, of course) instead of merely clicking “Send,” she can opt for “Send Envelope,” whereby, for a small fee, they’ll print out your letter and send it via U.S. Postal Service in an envelope that depicts the exact route the letter will travel between you and its recipient. If that’s not the coolest thing since Street View, we don’t know what is.
