    It is good, but I think local.live.com is better. Check out the birds eye view option, which is at a 45 degree angle, not directly overhead as in google. It's amazing!

    I found where I lived in Kuwait when I were a only a nipper (8)! Strange seeing it again, albeit from the sky.
    Quite scary though to think you can see this kind of detail for nothing. *closes curtains*
