I've been playing around w/ it and seems like a decent product for casual use.
You can upload pictures and videos as well.

You sure are living up to your nickname ;) I've toyed with it as well, I think it's really cool. Makes mapping so much easier.

I used it to quickly create a map of the soccer fields for our local soccer club.

It will be linked from the club's website and help other teams and new parents find the fields. It took 5 minutes to whip-up and has quite a lot of utilitarian value.

I used it recently for a fly fishing gathering we had on a big river. It worked out well for meeting locations, beer caches, etc. :P

Yes, it's awesome! I've been using it to map out my campus, building footprint by building footprint. Eventually I imagine you will be able to import polygons in. What's even better is the KML output!
