Microsoft GEO team getting it together folks!!

I've always been using Google Maps with Streetview but this demonstration of Microsoft's Bing mapping (Microsoft calls it "spatial search" - click here for the official explanation) with user generated overlays, internal building/structure dimensional views (via some backpack image capturing) and to cap it all; LIVE REAL-TIME streaming imagery overlays...with point of interest insane! (integration of the sky imagery pretty cool too!) Check out this article on Microsoft's getting it together folks!! I love the end credits in this video where the TED participant states that this is truly a glimpse of the future where we would have the world and everything happening real time, accessible, interactive and personalized, in the palm of our hands...awesome!
