I would say this is a cool feature, but it isn’t, if you want to see the Bing Map and not have the the journalist babble, take a look at this link:

The satellite photos in the after are not as clear as the before, but that is likely due to the photographic system, but I am really not sure.

Right now I am working on a cool geocode application that shows off HTML5, which for some reason people on the internet are saying Bing has switched to.  I am not finding that to be the case.

Take a look at the link, sad, but interesting.  Now I don’t have to listen to the babbling of the news readers.  Wow, why not just run the Japanese newsfeeds with translation, are most of these news readers doing any good.
