Once visited, you can see nice OVI map of place based on ISP of yours with clickable foursquare places to explore.
Plus current weather and forecast displayed.
If the location is urban you can have a lot of local online newspapers links under the map.
Just below are latest tweets from location (refresh works too) as well as located news feed from google.
Little magic thing happens when a place name (or address/city) entered instead of detected IP.
