I just hit backspace, I don't think the whole shift key thing works right.

It is also interesting to see how the country is broken down with just the first digit.

That's got nothing on Google's newish application, Keyhole.

Keyhole can zoom all the way in using actual satelite images and 3D topography. I saw it on 60 Minutes on Sunday and it looked freaking awesome.

The zipcode thing was pretty cool but the keyhole program kicks major ass!!!

I look forward to the day when I can take a laptop outside where I live, punch in my address and zoom in and see me waving!!!

Take care all!!!

wow - you can even check out N. Korea and Iraq and look for wmds... it says they have resolutions up to .7meters at Abu Ghurayb, but it's just all blurry compared to surrounding areas. Go figure. The coolest thing so far is I've seen is checking out Tokyo Japan.

I can't get Keyhole to work. An error pops up that says "Apologies Initialization Error" I've reinstalled it twice with the same result. Any ideas? Yes I have the recomended requirements.
