Fun with Google Earth

A lot of us have been discussing Google Earth, and Microsoft Virtual Earth (or whatever it's called) a lot lately, and one of the things that has come up is how few people you see in the shots. Cars, trucks, and inanimate objects are all there, but I couldn't really recall seeing any people in the photos. I think this news story should put that idea to rest.

(Yes, it's a foreign clip. It is not in English. Deal with it. If you have ever used Google Earth you will understand exactly what is going on, and will hear enough key words to get the whole story.)

This is another reason we know that no one is actually looking for Osama bin Laden. We, the peons, can see this with Google Earth. You know that is crippled to the point of uselessness. So, how good, and how hi-res, do you think the real surveillance photos are? Does anyone really think, anymore, that the CIA (or whoever) they couldn't find anyone, or anything, they wanted while sitting at their desks?
