MSN Virtual Earth – A sad reality

The beta is up and Microsoft has NOT caught up to Google. My three largest issues with this are, in no particualr order:

-Pulling B&W imagery
-Vector overlays on imagery are weak…i.e. too transparent
-No API (at least yet)

One nice thing might be the scratchpad if they take in the right direction.

That is it, hopefully Sue will give more thought to her description…
