Simple Multiple Marker Example of Google Maps JS API v3

Fairly new to the Google Maps Api. I've got an array of data that I want to cycle through and plot on a map. Seems fairly simple, but all the multi-marker tutorials I have found are quite complex.

Lets use the data array from google's site for an example:

var locations = [
  ['Bondi Beach', -33.890542, 151.274856, 4],
  ['Coogee Beach', -33.923036, 151.259052, 5],
  ['Cronulla Beach', -34.028249, 151.157507, 3],
  ['Manly Beach', -33.80010128657071, 151.28747820854187, 2],
  ['Maroubra Beach', -33.950198, 151.259302, 1]
I simply want to plot all of these points and have an infoWindow pop up when clicked to display the name.

his is the simplest I could reduce it to:

There is some closure magic happening when passing the callback argument to the addListener method. This can be quite a tricky topic, if you are not familiar with how closures work. I would suggest checking out the following Mozilla article for a brief introduction, if it is the case:

It will automatically randomize the Lat/Lng to make unique. Example will be very helpful if you want to test 500, 1000, xxx markers and performance.
