    Posted this on my blog on Monday night, but didn't see any mention of it here yet, so I thought I'd let you guys know in case you missed it. :)

    Google just launched a new addition to their "beta-family" on Monday, and it's extremely slick. Take a look...

    Saw this the other day and didn't even notice it hadn't been posted here. :p Google maps is for sure #1 map site on web now also. Crazy how much stuff Google is getting into these days and all seem very well done.

    You guys should try the local search. It's really convenient.
    Type in something like "Bookstores in Los Angeles, CA" or something more specific like "Pizza Hut in Los Angeles, CA" and it'll find all of them with telephone numbers and addresses. :)

    And of course, thanks for the reps :)

    That's a nice post, X. Read it earlier this morning. :)
    I was going to post more about it yesterday (as you would have expected from my initial post), but I had to sleep all evening because of a migraine headache. :ermm:

    I knew they were working on this but did not know it had gone beta. All I have to say is WOW. It is better than I ever thought it could be.
