MSDN Channel 9 / Virtual Earth

Microsoft's Steve Lombardi details the latest functionality of Virtual Earth on their MSDN Channel 9 site (here). They mention a few things that I didn't notice when I was playing with it (like printing and direction upgrades). He also demonstrates a map control application showing realtime traffic information.

So--- enough propaganda. Nevertheless, it is nice to actually to see the software developers talk enthusiastically about their product and aspirations for it.
