I wish I had seen this sooner (my apologies -- if you see this kind of cool stuff, drop me an email directly). Kudos to Colin for putting together GMAPMCE whereby you can browse Google Maps from the comfort of your couch. This is more addictive than I thought. This post explains how to get it available from More Programs in Media Center.

Anyone created one of these for http://local.live.com yet...?

Update: Yes, someone did and I feel just horrible I didn't pick up on it from Ian Dixon (to whom I susbcribe). Sean Mcleod put together an app which can be correlated with your geo-tagged pictures from the My Pictures feature in Media Center. Sweet. The app and details (including some source 'how to' snippets) can be found at Virtual Earth Media Center Add-in (The Code Project). Sean hasn't posted since November 10 -- hope everything is all right.

This seemed pretty cool...

"Microsoft Location Finder is a client-side application that turns a regular WiFi enabled laptop, Tablet or PC into a location determining device without the addition of any separate hardware. When launched by a user, Microsoft Location Finder uses WiFi access points - or reverse IP lookup when WiFi is not available - to center and display the person's location on an MSN Virtual Earth map, enabling the user to quickly and easily search in their present location."

I wonder if the MSN Virtual Earth guys have thought about a Media Center app yet?
