Gratuitous Google Post

Looks like the folks at Google have done it again. First they started with a nifty mapping tool, and then they added a feature that showed satellite images as well. Now they've come up with another option that overlays a satellite image and a map. So now it's actually possible to identify landmarks while you're looking at a map.


Now all we need is a traffic monitor feature that tells us how fast things are moving.

Bo, show me something better at MS and I'll take this back, but you guys really need to get moving!!

Update:

I stand corrected... http://virtualearth.msn.com/ C'mon MS marketing, surely you can get more press than this.

I just found out about google earth about a week ago! The pictures were taken over the past 3 years, so I looked up my old house which was torn down and there is now a new subdivision with big rich houses, and the old house is still there, but the streets are overlaid on the property. It was kind of weird...

So is the microsoft version more up to date?
