Ever though this link should be at the technology section,
I think that it should be posted here.

Invaluable knowledge, and you can see a lot.
Earth by google

It even points out the former Iraqi palace, the forbidden

Heck, I can even see Brooklyn!

now you can actually see the places in the news,

Happy scrolling! and google really outdid themselves here...

As a side note, doesn't the Forbidden City marker seem a bit off? The Japanese Imperial Palace does, too.
