    I'm trying to figure out the difference between Google maps and places, I read the cheat sheet MagicMike posted which was great but couldn't understand it full. Any help here is much appreciated. Get ur Thanks ;)

    google places is the bit that will come up on the front page of a google web search, either if you type in service+location or product+location, that sort of thing. It'll come up occasionally by recognising where you are based from the ip address and show local results anyway.

    in essence its google maps but on the front page. theres also a 'place page' which is a basic information page about the business, with photos reviews etc etc.
