Frank Fuchs informs that 'a search for Needham, MA 02494 on Google resulted in a onebox result with a Google map right on top'.

"Just below that happened to be a Yahoo! Maps result with the little button that allows you to expand a map in the SRP. And not as a surprise to me but maybe to quite some people – even so the title reads “Yahoo! Maps – Needham, MA 02494, United States” – the map was a Google Map."

Quick to respond was Google's very own Matt Cutts, who said, "Huh. Looks like we indexed a Yahoo search results page for maps. I’m surprised Yahoo doesn’t exclude that url in robots.txt, but I’ll pass on the report. Thanks!"

Heh, Heh! Not so flawless after all, Google!
