Danny reported on Google Tests New Local Ads On Maps which describes that when some people do a search on hotels new york in Google Local, and Google Maps comes up with blue balloons that represent the blue backgrounded sponsored results.

I personally find this very cool and I am glad they are labeled so clearly.
