    I was just wondering, this may be a stupid question but is Google Maps and Google Places two different things? Because i cant find anything about Google Places.
    As i've noticed Google has changed its search engine, where it now shows the Google places like there website. So now when you search for something you get a page full of Google Places first before you get to the websites that are not on Google Places.
