Google on Tuesday began rolling out an offline mode for Google Maps. Users can download a regional map -- say, a city, county or country -- either by tapping "download" on a search result or by going to "Offline Areas" in the Google Maps menu and tapping on the "+" button. The downloaded map will function in offline mode automatically when the user enters an area with poor or no connectivity, and it will switch back online when a connection becomes available.

This is a great feature. Honestly, you should expect something like this from Google. Offline maps are convenient to use when you get lost on the terrain where there is no access to the Internet. They also help a lot when a user visits a site in the Contacts section where the Internet is not fast.

I wonder if this will work for transit routes as well. This would be incredibly helpful for people looking for bus routes, etc. if they could do so on airplane mode and save their battery.

Should businesses and organizations require staff to provide proof of Covid-19 vaccination before physically coming to work?
Yes -- At this point it makes good sense and will help stop the spread of the virus.
No -- It sets a bad precedent against personal privacy and civil liberties.
I'm Not Sure -- There are valid arguments for and against vaccine requirements.
