    Dear MakeUseOf author, i would suggest you to place the poll in the sidebar and not in the post because if you would've placed the poll every week in the sidebar every one would see and vote but putting it inside a post bother people to click and not many people vote. I hope you will consider my suggestion.;

    Google Maps looks really cool. i could vote for other services but I know that most of the services announced, would not be available in my country.
