Google has just added a Layers service to the Google Maps client. In case anyone of you cares what this does, get to the quote below:

Layers make it easy to view various types of information on your map and are especially helpful in situations when you’re traveling somewhere new. For example, you can turn on the Wikipedia layer to read entries about nearby places, then use the transit lines layer to help map out a route.

You can also turn on the Google Latitude layer to see your friends’ locations.
