Google Maps – now in the UK :)

maps.google.co.uk

goodbye streetmap.co.uk and hello maps.google.co.uk (as well as local.google.co.uk) – the mapping system, now working the UK, is much cleaner – the local link shows all the different types of restaurants, shops etc in your area and places them on a map – suddenly finding things in your area is so easy! Its still in beta but have not come across a problem as yet 🙂 It will be good to see if 3rd parties use this as a foundation to add further content.
