Just noticed that MSN Virtual Earth has gone live. It looks pretty similar to google maps, but has a few new/different features. It can use the scroll button on your mouse to zoom, and is supposed to be able to locate exactly where you are using an active x plugin. The satelite view is unfortunately very lacking. There's no hi res coverage for Canada and the UK as far as I can see, and the images they do have are very out of date. I was able to find the world trade centres in NY, and they are still standing. In any case, I'll let you guys be the judge.
