Google Maps Revisited + Google Sightseeing

1. Google Maps - via Satellite

Google Maps recently incorporated satellite imagery.  Currently only USA and
Canada have close-up resolution, but you can get nice long-distance snaps
for other parts of the world.

Here are some interesting places I found tonight:
* Manhattan
* Boston
* Apple Computer's campus
* Golden Gate Bridge
* Las Vegas Boulevard
* Strange blurry area in Las Vegas
* Hoover Dam
* Mount Rushmore
* Grand Canyon?
* Area 51? - limited zoom levels
* Region around Adelaide, South Australia
* Italy
* France

2. Google Sightseeing
"Google Sightseeing takes you to the best tourist spots in the world via
 Google Maps' satellite imagery"

It was inevitable - a blog that collects famous, unusual and generally
interesting locations, as seen using Google Maps.
