Google Map Location Displays in Google News

Google has started to mix its Google Map with Google News. We found this happens in the Google news page where Google Maps displays relative location information to the piece of news.

For instance, there is a piece of news about Brazil and India to appeal Microsoft as its Open Office XML was approved by ISO. On the Google News page, Google Map displays Geneva where ISO is located.

Google News was just gathering news feeds automatically in the past. But it has become a news provider through quoting news from news agencies since September last year.

Until now, Google has not put any advertisements in those news pages.
