Get ready for Santa with Google Maps

So, if anything, Googlers have a sense of humour.

Their latest little prank has to deal with a certain jolly red man who's readying for his trip around the world in a couple days.

Essentially, going into Google Maps and slide out the menu on the left to bring up the 'location sharing'.  You'll see your typical list of folks you share location with plus a new friend.

Right now, well, he's just busy getting ready.  It looks like he's currently making a list up in the North Pole.

Sure, there is an app where you can track Santa, but only once he's on his trip, and that's a great app for Chromecasting on Christmas eve.

Now we have 2 ways to keep tabs on the big man and alert the kiddies that they should be asleep.
