updated: microsoft street slide view better than google street view? [video]

2 Aug

back in a february post i said that i’d be switching to bing maps over google maps soon (back then for the flickr integration). well, this newly released video from microsoft research has reaffirmed that notion as street slide looks phenomenal – especially to a map geek like myself. 

update: i fixed the youtube video above and it should work again.


forget google maps. i’ll be switching to bing maps soon.

this comic reflects the thoughts of many apple evangelists and fanboys. However, people need to realize that the world has changed and that google is now just as “evil” as microsoft once was. Just don’t expect any MacOS Zune support any time soon 🙂

a famous leader once said “you can always form an alliance with the enemy of tomorrow against the enemy of today.”

all joking aside, I personally like Bing and have used it on occasion – however, bing has not been able change people’s ‘default’ behavior’ and cut into Google’s Stranglehold on the search engine market of 72%. if the rumors are true and bing does become the default search engine of the iPhone on wednesday the 27th of January at the apple event, bing might finally be able to change people’s ‘default behavior.’
