I Always Feel Like Somebody's Watching Me...

It's not just a one-hit-wonder from the 80s; its true!

Sure, we've all seen where we and others live via Google Maps. But this time, Microsoft has stepped it up a notch with its new "Windows Live Local" site.

Now, as this is a Microsoft product, it doesn't always quite do what it says. For insatnce, it's not "Live", as my house is still occupied by the former owner as evidenced by their cars in the driveway, the salmon-colored siding (which was replaced in 2003), and the new construction at the end of the street had not started yet. However, the fact that WE can see this level of detail makes you wonder what "THEY" can see, and how "live" it really is...

The level of detail is stunning, even though the pictures are a couple years old. You can even rotate the image to view it from all 4 directions!

For example:
Enjoy & Have a Happy New Year!
