Sigh! The things that people do with Google Maps. Here Google Maps Standalone Mode that lets you have a customized version of Google Maps on your own web page. Cool huh!
What i like about the page is that it takes the pains to explain to us techies, how things work. Its a great opportunity to understand whats under the hood.

That reminds me, Google Maps is avialable for the UK now.
