  1. I don't care because last night was the first time I've played with
    http://local.live.com and it's bloody marvellous!

    I think they're at least 8 years old, possibly more.

    Ah! Google Earth version 0.3.05.

    Hold on a minute, GE is already on V 3.xxx. (and that's an old one).


    Hopeless imposter - so far.

    Thing about GE is that the user interface is truely a work of art.
    Please indulge me, I meant

    // WORK OF ART //


    The local.dead.thingy is just not in the same league.

    Well 's what I think anyway.

    It is striking that the great M$ when given something to copy, does not

    manage produce a significant improvement and in my view does not
    manage to match the level /at all/.

    End of summer, start autumn 2005 on mine. I can see my van and shed, no
    greenhouse though.
    Late afternoon going by the shadows and direction.
    Rows of beans are down awaiting sticks collection.

    Well, that's a fairly recent photo here - I can see my RX-7 parked in front
    of the garage and my mobile oil slick, sorry, the old Range Rover parked
    out on the road.

    Mid-summer, by the looks of it...

    I'm obviously being incredibly thick but I can't see how to get from
    that search engine to a satellite photo of my house. How's it work then?

    Put your post code in or navigate to your house etc

    click the "aerial" button the floaty menu rather than the default "road"
    button

    No, if anything it's a competitor to Google Maps. That's Google's
    web-based map product.
    Big whoop. How old's Autoroute? As that's Microsoft's app-based map
    product, wouldn't that be a better comparison?
    Let me guess, there's an M$ or Microshite comment coming up, isn't
    there?
    Ah yes.
    Well, I find comparing hotel locations easier on Live, I like the 3D
    topographic maps (bit of a gimick though), but the simplicity of the
    google road maps is nice.

    The features that both of them offer are similar, making it a personal
    choice issue. They both show maps of places when you type a postcode
    in. They both do journey planning. Why hate Live just because it's from
    Microsoft?

  20. I don't hate it, but those images are *far* older than Google Earth. I can
    date the one of my house to sometime prior to spring of 2004.
