    Satellite photography of the US has been online since the late 90's.
    And it's not like they couldn't use a PAPER map...

    They are not gonna be REAL time maps until they can have a satellite looking at every suare inch first. These maps are based on the USGS's (i think the acronym is correct) maps which are only updated every several years. The map that includes my house is years old, and doesn't show the new school, or the housing development that hs went up behind my house. And it still has the neighbor's pool in their backyard, which puts it back maybe 5 years.

    Just so you don't end up sounding like a dick yourself, just remember that anything that Scouse says that might sound offensive is really a joke.
