This week we look at two studies out of the UK that discuss how modern technologies like online maps and GPS seem to be changing human actions. Does the appearance of online crime maps change crime reporting habits? Do people who use GPS-enabled portable navigation devices (PND) get lost more often than those who use paper maps? Editors Joe Francica and Adena Schutzberg look at human behavior and awareness as factors that influence the choice of "paper or PND."
