Yahoo! News - Google Feature Incorporates Satellite Maps
Interesting, although I am not sure I like the direction layout. The UI is easier, to me at least, than MapQuest although I do like the format of the printed directions. I did like where you can get a detailed map of the area around the turns. I would have to actually try using the printed directions to see how they work compared to MapQuest, but my guess is they are a little tough. Being able to download the basic directions to a PDA/phone or to your navigation system in your car. It will be interesting to see what shakes out of the beta.
The only downside is that Google is becoming as bad as Microsoft.
