In away I'm kind of dissappointed, I wish it would provide information about the places you search. Like if you look up Vietnam, it would be nice if it told you facts about the place like population, elevation, chief inport/export etc... Even domestically when you visit a city, it would be nice to have some trivia like state bird, flower, what the city is known for etc...
