Garett Rogers of ZDNet was poking around Google's robots.txt file and discovered this rule: Disallow: /m/lcb
Ever curious, he typed the URL into his browser and found a mobile interface that lets the user navigate through some key search results without typing.
The feature works pretty well, but it would be even better if it could somehow figure out your exact location rather than simply the city. This way it could browse real businesses that are close to you rather than everything in the entire city. Maybe if you pass in some weird parameters with latitude and longitude it will do exactly that, but I canít confirm that at the moment.
Since this feature probably isn't "finished" yet, Iíll leave most judgment out of this article, but it is promising.
