From Kingsley Dennis at 'New Mobilies (ce-more) (University of Lancaster)' blog:
The New York Times has an interesting piece on the modern use of maps:
"THE road map today is mostly virtual — an electronic image on a screen, at home or in the car, provided by Mapquest or a built-in satellite navigation system."
"The new digital equipment for mapping provides technical challenges, especially for those old enough to remember paper grasped in fleshy digits. But in at least one respect, the new stuff is easier to use: few motorists ever mastered the secret of correctly refolding a road map."
