Have you guys had a chance to check out MSN Local Live that launched last week? If not, you may want to check out the bird's eye view, it is truly nice. Here is my office via zoomed in bird's eye view. The image below can be clicked on for a larger, but different view of my office (if you are interested), you can see my car (i didn't highlight it).

Very cool stuff. Now it doesn't work for my home, but Google Maps does. However, Google Maps doesn't have great satellite views of my office either. So who wins?

Technically MSN Local Live doesn't have *any* satellite maps. The imaging you see is from planes flying over, not satellites. Which is why it only works in such specific areas and not terribly scalable for mapping the world (or even US).

Yea, I know, those are arial views. Sorry if I wasn't clear. When I said satellite, I was referring to Google Maps.
