So Google launched a beta version of Maps this week. Pretty cool, huh? As usual, a blogger has already taken a peek under the hood.

I remember in 2004, when Amazon first launched A9, there was a lot of talk (at least in my circle of friends) about why Google didn't offer richer interfaces for web search. I think it's since become clear that Google believes the old adage: if it ain't broke, don't fix it. Gmail, Maps, and other Google products may require CSS, JavaScript, and additional, neoteric client-side features that may not work in all browsers; web search can and must work for everyone.

ObDisclosure: I have a personal and financial stake in the future success of Google, Inc.
