Guy in the Video: I got it!! we make pictures! and we make a cool user interface for them!
Microsoft: Yeah! that`ll cost too much money and it has no real life purpose! Once again we make a pointless, buggy and unstable program!
*round of handshakes*
My guess: It`s rather a supporting marketing instrument for Bill Gates` picture library Corbis.
your clearly new here. 1. nobody cares if you did or didnt watch it, its not gonna improve anything2. who says he was hating? he was saying that he was suprised it wasnt made by apple, that doesnt sound like hating to me3.sieg heil grammar nazi
I guess it shouldn`t matter coming from someone who has issues with basic spelling and grammar.
Yeah, I`m talking to you, fancylad.

Actually I think it`s not something new, just an upgrade of something we already have. Its concept is very similar to that of GoogleEarth (with the difference being a collection of text and photos instead of the globe`s image, of course), but with apparently awesomer loading times.
i bet the computer used in that demo had no less that 10Tb of RAM as well. Stuff like that isn`t happening on some Dell off the shelf.
it`s telling that even he is surprised to be doing this at microsoft, and from his comments, he`s surprised to be getting a good reception. that says volumes about microsoft and its reputation, to my mind.
this kind of work happens in universities like MIT and all across europe first, then move outward to corporations who BUY these ideas by hiring genius kids.

So why should that have anything to do with this advancement in technology? You make no sense with this statement, since I can not afford to go some where I should not look it up on the internet and enjoy pictures of said place?
you a douche.
I actually take an alternate viewpoint on the effect of pictures. When I see a picture of an awesome place, it makes me MORE likely to want to visit the real thing- I don`t say "Oh, I`ve seen it in a picture, now I don`t ever have to go experience it in person." I`d say that photographs are good for both memories and motivation to travel.
