I second that one...

very 'Microsoft like' to do that which is very un-Google, not hard to port for Mac. Should be out soon, hopefully they add a few extras for us!

It could be cooler, far cooler

When Google acquired the company Keyhole they changed image providers (or had licensing problems, whatever). I lost access to high res images of some favorite trails and potential trails..

Sample - on the boundary between high and low resolution.

And here's the really annoying rub, at home this AM on dial-up, I could not see the pics on my Mac, come to work, the land of highspeed=:) and my Mac shows them just fine, why can I see pics of it, but not view it? AARRGGHH=:( Not that I expect any solutions, from ya'll just venting! So close, yet so far.....

OMG! I saw my car.

(I had to crop the image for MTBR size limitation)

Thanks for the link!
Seems the bird's eye images are associated with development, but I've found trails on the edges - needs more investigation.

Update: more local trails, here singletrack below fireroad. :D

Another Mac guy here.
This is very cool, but very scary, in the "Big Brother" vein...

Mac is really just Unix at it's core. Shouldn't be left out of the software/programming mix anymore. :cool:

OGG
