Google Maps On Right Side Of Web Results

Google has been on and off testing maps on right side of the web results, in place of the AdWords ads. In fact, the map itself for me has been on the right side on some searches for a while.

Here is a picture of what I see right now:

Google seems to now be testing putting the map details as shown above in the lower portion of the web results, on the right hand side bar.

Wissam Dandan posted a screen shot on his Google + page of this in action:

This obviously takes away from the ad spots, but when the query is so local specific, it likely makes sense.
