Sucks for Zagat. Guess I'm never using it again. Suckers. Google is going to screw them up like all the other copmanies they have acquired.

This is an excellent move by Google and their location based aspirations. There’s no doubt Zagat stood as an industry standard, and has moved into the future very well. Established and ready to go.
