The Google Wow Factor!

Well, Google has been punching my Wow! button every week or two with all the new features and products they keep bringing out, adding to current products or acquiring. On Monday, they announced that they were adding a Beta version of their satellite imaging feature to Google Maps. They acquired satellite map company, Keyhole, based in Mountain Valley CA, around six months ago. You can type in an address, then click the Satellite button in the upper right corner to get the satellite picture; you can even zoom in with amazing detail. I found our house and my studio in Seattle and you can currently find just about any place in North America. Hey -- print out an image of your Mom and Dad's house and send them a framed copy! Surprise your friends! Spy on your enemies!
