So here lately I’ve been messing around with Micro$ofts Local Live stuff. It’s kind of like Google Maps. It has this very cool “Birds Eye” feature. It’s definatly something that I really wish Google had. Other than that they are pretty close to the same. There are good things about both. I did notice something interesting the other night. On populated urban areas M$ seems to have the most up to date pics. On the rural areas it’s definatly lagging behind. Below is an example.

This is a pic of one of my childhood homes via local.live.com It’s near Sharon, OK. You can notice that everything that I remember seems to be there just as it should.

 

This is a pic of the same location using maps.google.com You’ll notice that everything I remember is gone. There is also a new large building on the site.
