I promise to post something technical soon - but for now here's another OT post...
russ sent this news on the latest Google Earth update with New York in 3D. It looks awesome! Since I was only just in New York, I decided to compare a couple of photos with Google's rendering...
First, here's my photo from "Top of the Rock" at Rockefeller Center:
And this is the view from the Westin on 43rd and 8th
and Google's (had to make a rough guess on the position of my window)
Can I have my city in 3D too now, please?
