Google Maps API

Kick ass! Google has released their Maps API [google.com] for 3rd party developers. So now when you write something that hooks into their stuff (via XmlHttpRequest) and they make one of their almost daily changes to the backend javascript you won't be hosed. Something like this will really help with house-hunting applications and others of similar ilk.

Now google just needs to API-ifiy their geocoder (the software that changes an address to a latitude and longitude) so those house-hunting applications will be even easier to codify.
