Case in point is the recent ad for Google Chrome, released a couple of months after OK Go's sublime take on Rube Goldberg, but tech companies are not merely saluting the art of lo-fi in their advertising campaigns, but in their products too. Last week, Microsoft unveiled a pair of very sharp designs for their Bing Destination Maps. As well as classic American- and European-style cartography, you can also display your maps in either a Treasure version, or Back-of-a-Napkin--although its official title is Sketchy.
