Back Again

July 25, 2005

Whew. 4 months since my last post. Let’s see if I update any more frequently from now on.

MSN recently launched a map/satellite service to rival Google Maps. There has been much hoopla over Google maps and the subsequent release of MSN’s version as well. I’ve noticed, however, that while Google maps may be a hell of a lot of fun, it isn’t always accurate. I am moving in a couple of weeks, and was looking for various stores around my soon to be town, and got this completely wrong result when I typed in the address for a Kroger in Google maps. While it may look like a legitimate location in map only mode, switch to satellite view and you can easily see that this location can’t possibly be a Kroger. Well, unless it’s some new underground Kroger.
