Obviously Santa doesn't use Apple maps.

Prediction: a militant elf will take out Santa with a box cutter, gain control of the sleigh, and crash it into the toy factory.

I'm sorry but both of them need to put ore work into that whole thing. I mean it's cute and all. But even my daughter (when she still believed in Santa) didn't fall for it. She's like, "oh, c'mon. That's so fake!"

Seriously, Google? You just can't let anyone have their traditional holiday fun, can you?? Go sit over there with Disney, jackhole.

I wish Norad had kept the same format from last year, where you clicked on the present and a picture of that location would pop up, or the video was narrated by a Petty Officer on facts about that location. My daughter would get curious about it and we'd learn a little bit. This year seems a little lacking.

The google one sucks.

They sidestepped that by saying their nerds had come up with an algorithm that would predict Santa's route.

And , Yes, Google's suck, except for the games

They don't but when your the world's number one destination on the internet, you gotta come up with something in response to losing the contract with NORAD...

....Fifty-seven years now NORAD's been tracking him, and not ONCE have they gotten a clear shot?

I call BS.

My 8 yr old called them and I thought he was going to explode. They told him where he was and he ws all ttytytytytyty ok bye!!! Then when I told him that he called the military... He was even more happy to have to have talked to a soldier. So you Guys and Gals out there in the armed forces he sees you as bigger then Santa Claus! You are heros to him and us! Merry Christmas to all our armed forces! Past and Present! My hubbys a Vet and So are both My dad and my hubbys dad...

Wooo got dusty in here for me when he got excited....

So, apparently the best way to attack the US is to launch a nuclear missile very slowly over the North pole on Christmas?

No, because the missile would have to start at the north pole, head south along the international dateline, zigzag north and south while moving west at such a speed that it would always be under cover of darkness, thereby crossing nearly every international border in the world, until it finally reaches its target. And even then, I get the impression that NORAD would have little difficulty distinguishing between a magical sleigh and a nuclear missile.

That's right, so the fact that there are two tracking websites proves categorically that Santa exists.

Well, though the narration isn't there this year, the music is certainly good, and the graphics are pretty darn amazing. We've been following NoradSanta since the very first one on the web in '97 when my daughter was 4.  It's a good thing.

Stupid and tired, the headline is.

It's well past time for talking like Yoda and using the most stupid of Star Wars quotes to die.

Game's over when a kid checks both sites and finds Santa following different paths.

The best typo that clogged up the lines of a major military base in history.
Thanks SEARS for screwing up and the guy who didn't tell the little brats to fark off. And everyone that helped since then.

Just wait for the Disney sequels, there'll be fresh material.

It'll be interesting to see what Google does. Despite the bad CGI, I always liked NORAD's presentation, complete with staff "reports", radar and "gun camera" chase footage. The backstory of the NORAD effort rocks, too. I wonder how their Bing map thing is going to look. Again, the only thing I would ask for is some top-notch CGI.

He gets into homes through fireplaces? Floo powder. Homes with no fireplace? Apparation and portkeys work there. The whole world in one day? He could have a time turner.

Santa Claus... you are a wizard!
