Facebook verkar ha givit upp.
Eventuellt är Google alltjämt en intressent?

Googla på "Waze Facebook" eller se All Things D.

Enligt nya rykten så är det Google som verkar köpa Waze för 1.3 miljarder dollar.

Det ska bli spännande att se vart detta slutar.

Kanske waze kan få vettiga bakgrundskartor i editorn....

Just nu är det bara tröttsamt att editera.

Personligen hoppas jag att någon annan än just Google (eller Facebook) får köpa Waze. Dessa företags inställning till personlig integritet och hur de säljer information om kunderna via avancerad "data mining", gör att jag ogärna vill använda system som är kopplade till Google t.ex.

Webben har blivit nedlusad med användande av Google-API:er m.m. och annonseringstjänster som kartlägger folks datoranvändande och liv i övrigt. Det är svårt nog att värja sig, med mindre än att man går tillbaka till 80-talet i sitt tekniska användande (kombinerat med säkerhetsfinesser och plugins i webbläsare m.m. för att spärra spårning).

Se på vad som händer i USA just nu med NSAs övervakning via bl.a. Verizon.

Waze Joins Google!
Posted on June 11, 2013 by Noam
Dear Wazers,

I am excited to announce today that we have accepted an offer to join Google. I’d like to share some information about what this means for Waze.

Larry Page, Brian McClendon and the Google Maps teams have been following our progress closely and are excited about what we’ve accomplished. They share our vision of a global mapping service, updated in real time by local communities, and wish to help us accelerate. We are excited about the prospect of working with the Google Maps team to enhance our search capabilities and to join them in their ongoing efforts to build the best map of the world.

Nothing practical will change here at Waze. We will maintain our community, brand, service and organization – the community hierarchy, responsibilities and processes will remain the same. The same Waze people will continue to collaborate with you, and we will continue to innovate our product and services, making them more social, functional and helpful for everyday drivers. Our employees, managers, founders and I are all committed to our vision for many years to come.

Why not stay completely independent? We asked ourselves: “Will Waze still be a fun project to participate in, and a fun place to work, as a stand-alone public company?” Choosing the path of an IPO often shifts attention to bankers, lawyers and the happiness of Wall Street, and we decided we’d rather spend our time with you, the Waze community. Google is committed to help us achieve our common goal and provide us with the independence and resources we need to succeed. We evaluated many options and believe Google is the best partner for Waze, our map editors, area managers, champs and nearly 50 million Wazers globally.

Together, we can accelerate our mission to outsmart traffic. We will continue to make a real impact on drivers globally, helping them save time and money while making everyone’s daily commute a bit more efficient and fun.

So, it’s back to work for us with some great new colleagues and resources to enhance our project. Thank you for your participation in shaping Waze to what it is today, and we look forward to continuing to build out Waze together with you.

See you on the road,

Noam

Kan nog bli rätt så bra ändå. Google verkar ju inte vilja ändra på något, nu till att börja med iallafall.

These are very exciting news indeed!
We'll do our best to address all your questions here.

Basically, as Noam mentioned - nothing really changes in our workflow and in our work together.

Waze maps and Googles maps stay separated and it is not allowed to use google maps data to edit Waze maps.
However - there is going to be a significant focus on the enhancement of the map editor and new tools will be available to us - yes, that includes google's aerials and street view !
