Microsoft finally gets kudos for spanking Google maps, in Georgia

Posted by Brier Dudley

Microsoft Live Search Maps was the only major Web mapping service to provide good details about South Ossetia, showing Google and Yahoo how it's done, according to an illustrated comparison on SearchEngineWatch..

Meanwhile, Google's trying to tamp out speculation about it's Georgia maps. They're lacking because Google doesn't have the data yet, not because of censorship or a Web attack by militant Russian hackers.

But did Live Search Maps find this drunken Australian sleeping on his parking strip? I don't think so.
