Just a heads-up: A friend employed at Google pointed out to us today that our new favorite website, Google Maps, has just in the last day or two tied the satellite imagery from pay service Keyhole into the maps themselves, for free (just look for the link in the upper-right-hand corner). We've been having hours of fun looking down on the ant farm we all live in...and even though being able to get this meta on yourself is probably the beginning of the end, it's pretty cool, isn't it?

Other cool things with Google Maps:

- A new way to find your next overpriced LA apartment.
- Google Map Sightseeing.
- Google Map Memory Lane.
