Ask.com now has a slick, new maps site which looks very similar to Google Local. When I tested the site today, it seemed a little sluggish, often loading a blank map. However, that may just be due to extra traffic. Ask's maps allow you to zoom in and out using your mouse's scroll wheel, which is handy. The aerial photography for the regions I viewed seemed to be pretty good, although, like all other services, a little out of date.
