Yahoo! Takes on Local Search

I get pleasantly surprised when Yahoo annouces a new product, or service. They always seem like they just can't wait to show up their new shiny object. It's fun for us, cause before they ever do we start to pick out what they will launch, annouce, or morph next. So I found this new article enlightening, because yahoo said exactly one week ago that it would be focuses on "localization and personalization" with enhanced forms of media for future search. So yesterday, Yahoo launched SmartView, a new local Web search tool, that use Yahoo Maps in order to allow users to search for restuarants, theatres, and other places by a single address. Looking for General Tso Chicken at 2am, in Chinatown, insert you address and it will find the closest chinese places.
