Just came through the newsticker here in Switzerland.
Google akquired Endoxon.com's Geo, Mapping and Mobile divisions.

Endoxon is responsible for sites like goyellow.de, local.ch and map.search.ch

Details: netzwoche.ch/netzwoche/netzwoc ...
More details: endoxon.ch

Great news for us Europeans then ;) Live Local has always been better than GMaps in the UK... until now :D

Just wondering what will happen to goyellow.de, local.ch and map.search.ch since they are all kind of competitors to Google Maps / Local...?

Whats your point of view?
I guess they (Google) might just pull the plug (deliver no more maps to them) – and all of a sudden 3 competitors are gone!
