Leave it to Google Inc. (GOOG) to innovate. Its new online mapping service produces impressive U.S. maps that please the eye and are fun to navigate. And unlike competing services, you can put all your search terms into one box. But as a product still in "beta," or test phase, Google Maps clearly needs fine-tuning. I wouldn't abandon Yahoo, Mapquest or MSN quite yet.

  • A vial or small glass bottle, especially one for holding vinegar, oil, etc.; a caster for liquids.
