Yahoo India intros maps in local languages

The service is available now available in 9 local languages, Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Punjabi.

Yahoo! India introduced a new service for the first time in India — maps in local Indian languages and walking directions.

The service is available now available in 9 local languages, Hindi, Tamil, Gujarati, Marathi, Bengali, Kannada, Telugu, Malayalam and Punjabi and can be accessed from Yahoo! India maps.

After recently introducing driving directions, Yahoo! India is also offering the option of walking directions. Users can walk to their destinations with a walking route. These directions can be sent to a mobile phone as an SMS. There is also an option to pan and zoom to any point on the map, save it as an image and share it with others.

If a user is visiting a city for the first time and is aware of one prominent landmark, it is still possible to reach the desired destination by using walking directions. Besides providing key landmarks along the route (ATMs, hospitals, etc.), walking directions also provide clarity on every major turn.

Yahoo! India users can search for directions across 179 cities, 4,767 towns, and 226,114 villages. Users can also search for over 3 million points of interest already marked by Internet users from around the web.

I would recommend this device for families and small businesses who want one safe place to store all their important digital content and a way to easily share it with friends, family, business partners, or customers.

Brother QL-820NWB Professional Label Printer

It’s easy to set up, it’s compact and quiet when printing and to top if off, the print quality is excellent. This is hands down the best printer I’ve used for printing labels.

Brainstorming, innovation, problem solving, and negotiation have all become much more productive and valuable if people can easily collaborate in real time with minimal friction.

The print quality also does not disappoint, it’s clear, bold, doesn’t smudge and the text is perfectly sized.
