New Tech War Kicks Off as Google Enters Santa Tracking Market

By Gary Cutlack on at

Following the shock news of NORAD ditching Google's mapping tools and embracing Bing to power its Santa tracking site, we now have a new in-house Google option to keep track of whose mince pies Father Christmas is currently wolfing down.

Visiting google.com/santatracker/ brings up Google's own, all-new Christmas portal, which blows away the rather bland NORAD site by offering stacks of interactive toys, tools and animations. There's even a Chrome extenstion and Android app to make it even easier to chart the coming of the capitalist king. [Google]
