It looks very nice (maybe too graphical), but what are the major changes that justify the word "reinvents"?

So I search Yahoo Local for [lancaster united kingdom] and it gives me Kingdom City.

OK, so it's for the US only, but it wouldn't hurt to ask "Did you mean Kingdom City, Illinois?" instead of returning something clearly off-topic.

I prefer the Google-style Yahoo! Local ( although its still no where near as good as Google Maps (I can't use my scroll wheel to zoom).

[put at-character here]Roger You have to go onto Yahoo! Local UK to get the UK information unlike on Google. [PersonRank 10]

Yahoo just made a post about it on their blog – they seem to wait a day or two after a debut to officially post about it. Google does the same thing too – perhaps to get the initial public feedback and make changes
