Default Google Earth finally updates!

Google Earth/ Google Maps have finally updated some of their imagery! I can now see my house as bright as day. As far as I know, most of the new images were taken in 2007, and they look much better than the previous ones. I hope they keep this trend and update more places.

They update the areas when there is new aerial photography taken which is every so often, usually depending on when the city or county calls for it and needs updated pictures I think. My house was updated on there a couple months ago and you can see my car now.
