Yahoo mengt zich in strijd rond de 'Maps'

Yahoo heeft vandaag de laatste beta versie van Yahoo maps gelanceerd. De nieuwe tool gebruikt flash technologie en is meer hecht geintegreerd met Yahoo local. De nieuwe features maakt het mogelijk voor gebruikers om secifieke zaken door middel van drag-and-drop op de route terug te laten komen. Of er kan op de back button geklikt worden om eerdere kaarten te bekijken. Commentaar op Blogs: "Unlike Google and Microsoft maps, Yahoo has chosen to use Flash over AJAX in building its new service, and they've added new features that are not found anywhere else. They've also done some things to reduce the hassle of creating, sharing and printing maps online." "This is probably the best validation of Flash as a serious alternative to AJAX to date. Yahoo! Maps Beta has debuted and it is in Flash. There is also an AJAX version for the .0001 (percent) of people who don't have Flash installed." "It's not about maps, it's about the advertising platform that Google has built. It's not about prettiness, it's about who has the most user generated content." "It looks like Yahoo! Maps is trying to look like Google Maps - perhaps a bit too much."
