Mapping a Phone Number

Ursula is not real happy with one aspect of Google searching:

I use Google everyday, but I am not digging their new feature that allows you to enter a phone number and get a map to the address
These capability with or without Google has been around a long time. Just go to any of the various white page services, key in the number, and they will do a reverse look up and provide an address. Take the address to your preferred map site and, presto, you have the same thing Google is doing.

Me, I'd like to see the kids at Google talk to each other! Really, shouldn't they at least be listing the Google map?

I put my number in google.com, but didn't find it. My number is unlisted, perhaps that is why.

Regarding the listing of the google map, you're right. I found it by putting in map into the search and it brought up google.map or something like that. I clicked on it and it was the map you show.
