searching in the real world

This is so 21st century, and I really hope that they find Steve Fossett soon, whether they use Google Earth to do so or not.

Its interesting that the search needs to acquire up to date images for any sort of search to viable using Google Earth. And it makes you wonder how much of the data is live, and what is restricted. I thought I'd take a look at Baghdad one day, or hey what about the Afghanistan mountain range, maybe someone sitting in their living room in Pofadder could find Bin Laden.

Its a funny thing having this mix of amazing technology at your finger tips, with some of the letters in the alphabet kind of missing.

And its only going to get worse from the sounds of it.
