Google Maps, Treo Edition

I just downloaded the latest Google Maps for my Treo.

Awesome :)

Why is that? They have added two of the features I have most wanted.
When I go and look for a location, I can select addresses from my
contact database. Looking up friend's addresses on the map is now
just two clicks.

Better? When I find a business via Google Maps I can then select to
have a vCard created for the business (and Google even gives you the
phone number in the vCard). The application also gives me the option
to call the address as well.

So I can now find a business, and add it to my contacts database.

And for the hell of it, I entered "Cuppertino, California" and then
selected "MySQL" as a local business.

What did I get?

Not only the offices address and phone number, but the URL for the
company as well!

I loved Yahoo maps for years, but once Google Maps came out for my
cell phone I just switched to using Google Maps for everything. These
recent changes just confirm my love of this application.

The only thing that this makes me wonder? Why doesn't the Google Maps
web based interface allow me to download vCards as well?

Doggone it all...

Well that tears it. Now I REALLY want a TREO. Unfortunately, a Treo or any other palm type device is outside of my current budget. And will continue to be outside the budget until long after the Treo has been supplanted by technology that takes us well into the age of true cybernetics.


And, oh by-the-way, when are we going to get together again?
