Another little party

Tuesday, November 7 2006

MS has launched a neat thing today, maps with a 3D environment and it looks great. It is called Live  Search. 

The commercial possibilities are so many, I can see the whole travel industry, news org for breaking news etc using these. MS owns this data but the apps are free (if I understand it right). So far they have mapped 15 US cities properly but they more countries as well but not yet at such details.

Here some of my pics (yes, more is at Flickr)

MS handed out a Goodybag which had a 40gig HD with some pics, videos etc and here are two;

Downtown SF

And ads can & will be used as well.

    A little late on the scene, but they’ve arrived with a step ahead of Google and Yahoo! maps. With their commercialistic (if thats a word) approach to things, it’s to be seen if they will outlast their competitors.

    I think they can make loads of money from this. Everything is becoming more visual for sec that goes by. They are on a winner here. And it can be used on a normal computer power.
