Ask.com has released their own Ajax Maps solution, that looks a lot like Google Maps again. They have added a couple of small features such as driving direction playback and saved/recent locations which is nice, but not a huge amount of innovation here.
What is interesting in the maps space is how much the platform, and the API matter. Although a ton of people are doing Google Maps mashups, more and more people are starting to use Yahoo! Maps for their mashing pleasure. The reason isn’t that they prefer the mapping engine, but much simpler., Yahoo! Maps doesn’t force you to have a domain api key. This may not be a big deal for your pet project (get the API key once), but if it a big deal if you are selling a product that uses mashups, as it means that you need your users to install a domain key as part of their installation step. +1 Yahoo.
