Finally! Today is the day I officially switch from Google Maps to Live Maps. The new Live Maps has a host of new features, but more importantly it finally brings a better user interface to the world of online mapping *i.e. kicks Google’s ass*
The first improvement legacy users will notice is the elimination of the stupid two-boxed search table which was located at the top. These two boxes have been conveniently replaced by four elegant button links labeled, "Home", "Hotmail" *I thought it was Live Mail*, "Spaces", and "OneCare." I’ll be writing an in-depth review later this week as I explore some of the new functionality! In the mean time, visit http://maps.live.com and make sure you try out the enhanced 3D engine. Finally, I’ll let you in on something really really cool–personalized 3D models of anything you want.
