Google Maps revamps navigation settings, lets you force the dark color scheme all the time

Google Maps keeps on rolling one change after the other. In October alone, we've seen the new Commute tab and music controls, overhauled hotel listings, star ratings on the map, EV charging stationsdish tagging, and more.

[Deal Alert] Memorial Day Sale

Update Memorial Day: Well, Amazon prices didn't drop today. Our Amazon rep hasn't gotten back to us to confirm, but @AmazonWireless has tweeted that the "all 4G phones free" sale wasn't real, so I'm writing off the Amazon part of this sale as a hoax. :(

They've re-done all the characters and levels in the usual Seasons fashion, and, honestly, this is one of my personal favorites:

As a rule, I don't condone drunken bird-throwing but, because it's a holiday, I may just make an exception.
