http://techcrunch.com – Google has quietly brought back embeds to its new Google Maps interface today and announced that it plans to include ads in these embedded maps in the coming weeks. When Google launched the new version of its online mapping service, it introduced a new look, more personalized maps and a slew of other features, but it also left out things like easy access to Streetview and the ability to take a map and embed it elsewhere. Earlier this month, Google brought back Pegman to make Street View more accessible and today, it's reintroducing embeds, too. The feature is now available again to everybody (IT news)
