Google places iPhone app was announced today. This is the first rev of something that is likely going to be pretty big. A quick review:
Good: Lots of data, Aggregated feedback (Yelp, CitySearch etc.)
Bad: Very basic interface, no checkin, very few pics and most of the pics are taken from outside
Ugly: Hard to use, search based interface with very little browsing support e.g. if you want to find Indian restaurants close by you have to do a search. A little bit better taxonomy would be helpful
Ways to go before it become a highly used consumer product.

Yesterday, while I was att work, my sister stole mmy
apple ipad and tested to see if it can surbive a 40 foot drop, justt so she can be a youtube sensation.
My apple ipad is now broken and she has 83
views. I know this is totally off topic but I had
to share it with someone!
A lot of consumers get deceived into scams via hyperlinks
in dubious e-mails. Never make your final purchase without searching for discount or discount requirements.
If you need to know more, then youare not alone.
