Google invents personal jetpack

Maybe when you have your own plane, everywhere looks like a runway. Maybe the Google boys have an underground drilling machine a la Oceans 13, or a Segway that climbs over roofs. Can't see quite how else you would actually manage to take the suggested public transit route on Google Maps from our hotel to the RSA conference next week. Maybe you can get through the Westfield Center but you'd have to break into an awful lot of businesses to take this route at ground level.
