    The GE pics of my place are 18 months newer than M$, but the later are somewhat clearer. I can tell by which of my recent lemon cars is parked outside.

    Pics of my school are over a year old too, but very good.

    I love live.local.com, its much better than Google Earth For my area. It also doesnt need any downloads and is kinder to the profile than Google Earth. Also it doesnt steal all your data and sell it to strange people for lots of money.

    Indirectly they do. They look at what your doing with their services and send you 'relevant' adverts along with your search results/email/web pages/etc.
