Speaking of Mapping

Yahoo has released their mapping update to compete with and It looks appealing, but I tested a somewhat odd address that is a restaurant in a shopping mall - "44 Yorktown Convenience Center, Lombard, IL 60148". Only google got it right. And it got it JUST right. Impressive.

On the other hand, google, and the others emphasize their money making local links, which diminish the useful size of the actual maps. Sometimes the google map is full width, and sometimes restricted by local lists on the left. It is tough to figure out how to get the full width map.
