Google adds local search feature

Twitter went local or rather it has tried to show local trends which I felt was a great way to get the dirt on what is happening locally. Well we could not expect Google to sit idly and look at other website steal the thunder when it comes to local search. So now we have a search option with Google called Nearby.

Google “Nearby” Results

Overall I think this is meant for people searching for information locally like looking up places of interest. So what do you think about so much emphasis websites are laying on going local. Do you think it is viable or actually useful? Do you think other than maps and road directions you would actually want to search for local results? Do drop in your comments.
