The Google Satellite… huh???

    January 17, 2006

theinquirer (a popular UK-based news resource – figures that rooftop advertising – something that’s been going on long before google earth came along – is now gaining popularity due to the popularity of Google Earth.

Actually, if you look down the next time you take off in a jet from any major airport you’ll notice loads of rooftop ads. This is a good example of what they are referring to, however, I had to chuckle when I read in the article by Nick Farrell that the objective was to get the attention of the Google satellite!!

Pardon me, but since when has google used their own satellite ??? Too funny… I guess someone needs to notify the inquirer that google licenses the imagery from commercial data providers… OOPS!
