this guy is living in some kind of a different world.. obviously not our world..
he says the following:

<< Google has a neat new feature that you need to check out. From the Google home page, type in the word, "restaurant" and then a zip code, for example, "restaurant 30506."

When you hit enter, Google will give you an option to select that says: "Local results for restaurants near Gainesville, GA 30506." Click on this link.

Google will then give you a listing of all restaurants in the zip code along with a map showing where they're located. This is a great tool, especially if you do a lot of traveling. >>

someone should send this guy an email.. real fast, and specify that its 2006! (Google Local has launched on 2004!!)
