Yahoo Will Be a Part of Web-Only Presidential Debate; Mobile GMaps Asked to Remove Google Content; Let's Search for Video

+ Yahoo to host US presidential debate online in September (via IndianTelevision.com)
The YouTube/CNN Debate offered questions from YouTube users. This debate will be available only on the web and questions from viewers will be asked in real-time. It's being produced by the Huffington Post, Yahoo, Slate. More in this WashingtonPost blog item.

+ Mobile GMaps no longer serving Google Maps (via GISUser)
Mobile GMaps is a third-party tool, "that allows the user to Yahoo! Maps, Windows Live Local (MSN Virtual Earth), Ask.com*, Open Street Map and other sources." More from MobileGMaps about the removal of Google Maps including the letter from the Google Enforcement team here. More from Ogle Earth.
Note from Gary*: If you use Ask Mobile and want to view maps and aerial imagery, no special downloads or tools are required. Here's an example (you can also check it out a regular browser) of a map and aerial map of Wrigley Field in Chicago.

+ A New Yahoo Video in the Works
We think it's important to point out that YouTube and Yahoo are far from the only web sites allowing users to host, share, annotate, etc. video. As Phil Harvey illustrates in this post, there are numerous services out there. We also noted last week that Blinkx just passed the 14 Million Hours of Content and More than 200 Media Partnerships.

Some of our favorite video searching resources (free and fee-based) are listed here.
