Google enhances local web search for US iPad users

Google added a new feature to its web search for US iPad users on Tuesday. In addition to traditional web results, this new enhancement displays a virtual carousel with reviews and photos that detail local businesses matching your query. Selecting an image card reveals additional information, including a map for directions to the location that you're viewing. Absent from Google's announcement were plans to bring this feature to Android tablets, such as the Nexus 7 and 10. Hopefully the search giant's loyalists won't have to wait too long for an update. In the meantime, iPad owners will have first dibs on this potential Urbanspoon replacement.
