I've found it to be an incredibly useful tool, but I was rife with disappointment this morning when I scoured the Google Maps page, only to find that the "Call" button had gone missing.

I later confirmed my fears, ironically through a Google News search, by finding an article detailing that Google has killed its click-to-call program."
