The beta version of Google maps is fantastic. No more waiting to reload when you want to see a little bit further down the road. Just drag the map over. Take a look at maps.google.com.

These maps make it easy to find businesses, driving directions and more. Just like standard Google search, you type what you want to find and it appears in a fraction of a second. For example, if you type pizza in manhattan, you get a list of pizza restaurant web sites alongside a map that has the restaurants plotted on the map. There are other neat features.

Another superior service from Google. As a user, I am thankful to see a better map is on the way--no more map quest for me. As an investor, I can see the advertising potential for Google.

Think of the potential when combined with blue tooth or other wireless technology and a cellphone.
