As I said in the comments over there, and will repeat here, the name of the new display is The Keg. If we used to have 3-packs, 7-packs, and 10-packs ... we now have a full Keg of local search results dominating the page. Long live The Keg! :-)

Thanks to the new change, I'm almost entirely reluctant to bother using Google as my search engine. These SERPs are total garbage. Big brand names and big directories get dominance - as if they needed it? I now have to scroll 3/4ths down to see organic results (which is all I care about). Horrible move. Why on earth they separated the map and pinpoints is beyond me. But that's just my opinion :)

Pixelrage. we must not be talking about the same results...small businesses are getting far more screen real estate in these new results than they ever have at Google...?
