Google & satellite maps

Google has just announced that they have finally got round to doing something with the technology they got in their acquisition of Keyhole in October last year, and incorporated satellite imagery into Google Maps and Google Local. In response Dion Almaer makes some good comments about usability, but I must admit to being impressed with Google's new service...

However the guys over at O'Reilly's MAKE magazine had the same idea as me, this service, a mobile phone and a bluetooth GPS have the words "killer app" written all over it...

Update: Slashdot has also picked up the story...
