    Microsoft hitting Google right back with their very own 'earth' website.

    I have to say the images look a bit clearer via MSN, and it remembers the last place you looked at when you go back! :slayer:

    Map and Satellite images from a while back.

    Google have one too, seems to cover more of the world.

    Seems to be a lot more functional than Google - I especially like the fact you can scroll in using your mouse wheel BUT it doesn't cover the world in the same detail - so I can't see my car via satellite... (I think I can see it in maximum detail on google as a red dot - been parking in the same place for years now).
