Not "defending" Google BUT...
Still 'recovering' from the (IMO:) educational thread about Windows tools I had some programs still open and wondered how this would look with Bing. As said in the title; not my intention to "defend" Google or anything, but merely showing that they're not the only ones who keep loose knots around.
You're looking at the 'Aerial view' of the same terrain which El Reg (Google) pointed us to. Now go to the 'Aerial' menu and change the view to "Bird's eye". Presto; everything changes.
You're right, its friday (1am at the time of writing, so no freedom yet, but still....). I bet Google got "binged" :-) (lame joke, I know)
