Some Windows Live Local Updates

  • The Windows Live Local announcements on the Virtual Earth and MSN Search blogs.
  • Via Boing Boing, some privacy concerns regarding where Microsoft gets its “Location Finder” data were raised on the Geowanking mailing list.
  • James Fee is disappointed with the bird’s-eye view: “I know people say it is good to help reference themselves when they get to an intersection or such, but personally I would have rather seen Microsoft put more money into better satellite imagery, than this 45 degree angle view as it has been implemented.”
