Search this square block

Ask.com is not the search engine I first think of when doing local searches or stuff with maps. However, the Google-maps-clone, AskCity has a new feature described in their blog today that sounds, well, pretty amazing. You can draw a square on a map and then search is constrained to that area. I’ve only tried it out to search the company where I spend my day. It didn’t work. However, the company is listed on Google’s local search. Cool feature. Just needs a little beefing up of that database, apparently.
