This is one of the most amazing things i've ever seen on the net! You need windows xp and a broadband connection to view
Google now has a site that offeres satelite images of the entire planet. You can even tilt the map and look at things in 3D.
Maps for big cities like Los Angelos are really high resolution. Other maps are older and not quite as good, buti'm certian that in time the entire world will be high res.
See if you can find your house! Where high res photos exist, you can zoom in close enough to see what make and see what color car someone is driving. i wasn't quite able to decide which make and model cars they were....
