    Frankly the whole thing sounds like the set up to a really funny joke.

    Cue conspiracy nutters, stage left!

    I would have liked to have had the superdy-duper high-res images on GM, that'd be rather amusing for me. Any hint as to where these higher res things are going to start?

    So Google finally launched their killer laser satellite. And they are going to launch another one soon.

    I don't see why I should be happy about this.

    ^ haha amazing.

    If I had a flat roof or a bigger garden I would be leaving out a message. Anyone with the space to do this, please leave a message of some sort, don't make it dirty as I imagine it will get censored.

    The GeoEye-1 satellite will give Google exclusive access to high-resolution geospatial imagery - Pretty sure thats not only wrong but they are only allowed to use images to a certain degree of accuracy (slightly 'lower' than the satelites capability)

    when they release geoeye-3, they will pinpoint strategically all 3 satellites and burn the earth to crisp!

    It will take a really long time for them to grab large areas of the UK, since it seems to scan only smallish sections with every pass and only if its in the right alignment. the US will take even longer.

    Which part is wrong? I can assure you that Google does have an exclusive right to the commercial exploitation of the imagery, and I can also assure you that the resolution offered to Google is approximately twice as high as any other company - although, as I say in the article, not as high as the government get out of it.
