Show Me The Way

One of the Internet's most valuable services is helping us get directions from point A to point B. Here is a quickie review of the popular mapping services, Ask Maps, Google Maps, MapQuest, Windows Live Local, and Yahoo Maps.

Yahoo Maps comes in two flavors, the standard Flash version and the new beta version of the Ajax Yahoo Maps. They give the beta high marks. I still haven't gotten used to its interface. It seems easier to plug in point A and point B and get directions with the old one. I guess I need to explore it a little more.

These mapping services should enjoy their traffic now. They will less valuable when our cell phones come with built-in GPS mapping with map data fed by our cell phone providers. Well, that's my prediction. :-)
