Yahoo and Google Go Mobile

Big day in the mobile space. Yahoo releases a mobile version of itself. Depending upon my phone I can get all my Yahoo services on my device. Played around with different phone models and found they've done a good job factoring features by phone, so if I select my Nokia 6620 I am shown all the features, but my Nokia 6200 has fewer. Smart, and very user friendly.

Google released, among other things, local search for the phone. Now that's a useful thing. I want to go somewhere, don't know how to get there, so I search it and get a map. I think it's a stake in the ground for something much more. And if they are true to form they'll allow others to build on this free technology, just like they do with Google Maps today.
