engineer Ari Gilder decided to propose to his girlfriend Faigy,
although he didn’t take the traditional route with a candlelit dinner,
instead he devised a unique way to propose using Google Maps and an
Ari arrange for Faigy’s boss to give her a Nexus One smartphone
preloaded with Google Maps, he then sent his girlfriend on a scavenger
hunt around New York City, and she had to visit various places around
New York, at each one she was asked a new question.
I recently decided to propose to my girlfriend, Faigy. I knew I
wanted to do something meaningful and —yes—a little over the top, so I
decided to put my software engineering skills to work to create the
ultimate romantic scavenger hunt. On the road to "The Big Question,” I
wanted Faigy to visit places around New York City that were filled with
memories of our relationship. My plan was to construct a map of the
route and get my girlfriend from one destination to the next, all with
the element of surprise. Google Maps gave me the tools I needed to make
the magic happen.
At the end of the route was Ari Gilder, with a final question which
was the proposal, we suspect she said yes, you can find out more
information over at the Google Blog.
