Google Maps update

Google Maps has made a couple of significant but quiet updates in the last couple of days. First of all, you can now see a map of the entire world (previously it only had the USA, Canada, and UK), and there are now hi-res satellite images for some major cities around the world. I can now see my old university, in Adelaide, for example. Unfortunately my old house is not in the hi-res area, only the city centre is available. They don’t have any hi-res images of Sydney at all though, so I guess I’m lucky. They’ve also improve the street-level maps; read here how it’s improved in Seattle. Check out the sights yourself.
