Issues With A9’s Yellow Pages

The USA Today’s Jefferson Graham writes about a few problems he’s noticed with a9’s just released yellow pages plus + images database. You can read his findings in the article: Oops! Amazon’s new online Yellow Pages pictures Rockefeller Ice Skating Rink as a bus. Graham also touches on privacy concerns that some people might have with a9’s new service.

Like Graham, I’ve noticed images that don’t match to the correct address. Additionally, I’ve comes accross many businesses I’ve searched for not even listed in their telephone directory. For example:
+ Movie Theaters, Silver Spring, MD. There are many to choose from in a 10 mile radius and zero are listed.
+ Chicago Cubs in Chicago didn’t return up a phone number or address.
+ Fluky’s, a famous Hot Dog joint on Western Ave. in Chicago, is not listed. Other locations are listed.
+ Yahoo HQ in Sunnyvale, CA is not listed.
