Google Earth vs. Microsoft's Maps.live.com

I love playing around with Google Earth and Google's Streetview but for rural areas like Upstate NY it's just not practical for Google Streetview to photograph every stretch of highway.

Microsoft has done almost no promotion for their maps program (www.maps.live.com) which means it will likely die a slow death inside Mister Softee. However, the Birds Eye View available on their maps puts Google's Satellite images to shame.

Consider this image of the Thousand Islands Bridge.... Beautiful aerial shots of the 1000 Islands Region.

Cheers!
