The good people of Yahoo! saw our schoolgirl glee at Google integrating traffic into their maps today and sent us a little email to let us know that Yahoo! has had traffic on their maps since December of 2004.

We sit corrected.

And even though Yahoo!'s traffic is pretty damn good, and indeed better than Google's; Google's maps are smoother, cleaner, and thus better than Yahoo!'s. But we must say we never considered Yahoo an alternative to Google for maps, but now we do.
