New Delhi: There is no dearth of online resources for the avid tourist. But an experimental product from the Google stable might be worth a watch. City Tours helps you plan out detailed multi-day itineraries for many cities. The plans include a list of places, walking routes and times, and even a suggested time to be spent at each destination.
Particularly useful is the ability to tailor these plans by number of days. While City Tours is still a Google Labs product, it has huge potential for public particiption.
Also this week, in light of the recent Gmail outage, e profile a website that tells you if something is down for everyone or just you.
See the video to see demos of both services.
