Google Maps is the basis of all Google Mapping products and it's easy to use in your website. You don't even need an access key any longer and so we show you how to build a web page with a map in a few minutes.

The link in the article that purports to go to "http://code.google.com/apis/maps/documentation/javascript/" in fact goes to "http://www.microsoft.com/maps/". WTF?

WTF?
Like you've never found a broken or wrong link before? :-)
Well its fixed now so thank you kindly.
PS And voting down an article for one incorrect link seems a bit - well - mean...

A broken link is one thing. But inserting a link purporting to go to product A going to competing product B? Give me a break. But I'm removing the down vote since it's fixed.

So you think I'm in the pay of Microsoft trying to get innocent Google Maps users to move over to their product
If only :-)
The truth is I was looking something up on the Bing Maps site to compare it to Google Maps and screwed up pasting the URL.
It happens - it isn't a conspiracy or an attempt to confuse or influence.
And as soon as you pointed it out I fixed it. So thanks for pointing it out.
