On top of that if Virtual Earth is intergrated into Windows Vista properly and if the meta-data of the picture contained the co-ordinates, then when the pictures are transferred onto computer (wirelessly of course) an Eagle Eye 45deg view of the exact location
of the picture could be shown side by side the image bringing up a whole plethera of new and potential interactivity with your images.
Horrible idea. A webapp like this shouldn't be intagrated into any OS, that's the point of webapps, they're integrated in browsers (ideally using well defined standards). Webapp to OS integration features are gimmicks, not great design ideas.
i really am digging virtual earth. I think it is great - better than google maps as far as useability..I just with there was driving directions built in, and not using another window and MSN Maps!
How can you say the USEability is better than google maps when you point out it doesn't do driving directions. Again, can we finding directions is one of the main USEs of mapping software (if not the MAIN use)???
