Armchair paddling

Tuesday, 05 December 2006



It seems that Microsoft has been working silently on a slightly different version of Windows Live Local. A recently discovered preview version allows you to view an overhead shot of the street as well as a sideways view of the building and houses. Really cool. Now all we need to do is get that for some of the water trails out there and I would never need to leave my house again.

Imagine how cool it would be to zoom in a view a tidal rip, campsite or rock arch before you get there? Would be great for trip planning/inspiration indeed.
