Microsoft has launched Virtual Earth and just like Joe Hewitt, I am utterly disappointed to say the least.
All of NH as far as I can tell is black and white. Props for the greater detail in some areas like Manchester, but black and white is useless to me. Note that Google Maps is actually worse in this regard: it has color, but no detail whatsoever.
Disappointed is the right word I think. Could be oh so much better, but Microsoft blew it if it is going to be black and white.
