Google have now released (in Beta) some features that were only avaliable in the States.
Maps, which load near by cells in cache to speed up draging.
Local, which is a bit like Yell and
SMS, which lets you text google, and get directions, phone numbers, froggle prices or google search snippets.
For those who are worried about pub quizes, I’ve so far found it too slow.
My only problem with Maps, is that they claim to get from my Mums to mine, you can do a U-turn on Broadgate, which anyone in Lincoln knows is impossible.
