You may have been - new version has images across the bottom in a film strip and the little man for street view is on bottom right.

There's a thread on the google product forum alight with angry people. Until today you could choose to use the classic google maps which actually worked very well. Now you're forced to use the new one. :(

Google maps was good, then turned rubbish. I didn't realise you could go back to the classic version. If it ain't broke don't fix it! :stomp: :stomp: :stomp:

I only have the pictures on the bottom of the screen (on satellite view) on my map. I dont have any of the other columns that you speak of. :shrug:

I was bored and decided to update my signature but i couldnt think of anything to put, so i decided to just put Bollocks!

Have you tried accessing it through Google Earth ?

I use Google earth all the time. The street view implementation of Google maps *was* much better

Used Google Earth for the first time in yonks yesterday... Fucking brilliant!

3D mapping now (or since i last used it) so buildings are erm.. 3D! It has put a totally new edge on the thing and you can see things in a way that you could not before. I think its fucking ace and cant stop looking at different places on it! :)

3d models of buildings has been on google earth for years. I used to have it turned off as it was too processor intensive. but pretty cool now.

You can make the models and put them on there yourself too :)

Must admit I can get lost for hours on google earth.

I think my G.E must have done an update at some point since i last used it. It used to be interesting but nothing like as interesting as it is now.

Im kind of hooked at the moment. :)

Around here the roads appear to have been imaged about five months ago. No nude sunbathing that I can see though.

There is no date on Google Earth that I can see, but to their credit I can look into the sky (at night), plus the moon and Mars in some good detail, just to see how the locusts managed to hide the canals.

The best facial is a daily facial.

Thanks

Last date is 06/2015, allegedly. More interesting though is the imagery start date of 1945.
