The earth isn't flat. It is round


Lifehacker alerted me that Live can now do 3D maps!  Right now San Francisco, Atlanta, Boston, and Seattle are in 3D.

What is even cooler is you can use some javascript with the provided API to manipulate the earth. 

Here is the "hello world" program from the post.

<script type="text/javascript">
var map = null;
function OnPageLoad()
    map = new VEMap('map');
    map.LoadMap( new VELatLong(42.35822, -71.05309), 19, 'h', false,VEMapMode.Mode3D );

    Quiet impressing, but in my opinion it requires cross browser compatibility
