O H M Y ! ! ! !

I'm speechless and thank you for posting this. They literally *JUST* released this because I was on Google Earth for most of the night last night saving hundreds of images for my web site directories. Now they all look like low grade junk with what was released today. I'm just amazed... I can make out objects recognizably smaller than the windshield of one of the cars I had parked in my driveway and I can clearly see the make and model of every car on my street. This is more detail than I've ever seen in this format.

NICE! I'll be at this all night replacing and updating static images...Oh I'll enjoy it with this quality. They outdid themselves ! !

You're right....I think I just located the princess, I could never find the evil castle she was being kept in on the previous versions of Google maps. Nice work Google!!

ASSecond thread to fool me today. You guys...

On the other hand. I looked up my hood from the map and nearby a house burnt down last year. The pic shows it intact. 2012 Copyright Google, huh? Am I missing something or are we that in the dark? I mean a year out?

Try blowing on the mouse, I read in some beta tech forums that this sometimes makes it play and look better.

On my iphone i cant see the punch line here
Guessing this is a joke?
Cool
But google is going to take new pictures soon...

I got a big white cross/"X" right across from me on the ground.

Thats will be used for composites for the new pics.

to me it's zelda 2, literally my first video game I had as a kid




lol it makes where I live look so epic, surrounded by mountains and ocean, zelda 2 style

I LOVE how this is changing my perspective on the area I live in, by relating it to the NES style of thinking I had like 13-15 years ago LOL.

How do I do anything? The video makes it look like you can do things, and I can't figure how to do anything

maps.google.com...

then click the quest icon

then you can place the little character anywhere in the world and it will show the google street view except everything looks 8BIT, hope that helps.
