Google Maps - Is there anything Google can't do better?

Google has release a new product into the Beta stream... Google Maps. Google maps feature dragable, zoomable maps, with a great looking interface and dropped shadows. It looks so good you wonder how they can do it in a browser.

It has all of the expected features in that you can find a pizza parlor near your house and you can get directions to and from just about anywhere. They have even included a handy "link to this page" feature.
