Google Stalking - Find Map Location by Phone Number

Using Stumbleupon I ran across an excellent mashup of Google Maps and a phone number exchange service that allows you to input most U.S. and Canada prefixes and it finds the approximate location on a map.

It doesn't work for all locations, but I was able to pull up about 95% of the numbers I tried including mobile phone numbers, home numbers and work numbers. It won't work with Skype or many other VOIP numbers of course and it is only for the U.S. and Canada. Try your number and see how accurate it is. Pretty amazing and sort of creepy that its that easy...
