PersonMaps Google mashup combines mapping with White Pages

Always the mashup fan on the look for cool new apps., check out PersonMaps at This mashup appears to combine the white pages, or a similar directory with the Google MAp API, enabling fast, simple location of addresses and phone numbers. In testing it seemed to yield 0 hits whenever I provided a first name along with last name. Using only a last name along with a city and State generally provided an accurate hit with the results I was expecting... quite cool. Once found, the "zoom to" action is nice, providing a tight zoom on the address and lists a box with the full address.
