Bing Maps

Alex:
FYI:

When you type in maps.live.com, you are taken to http://www.bing.com/maps/. Bing replaced live.com overall.

Unfortunately this means, that like mapquest maps, the window for maps is now wide-screen with significant space allocated to top and bottom margins. The bird's eye view and other options however remain.

akotchi:
^  I just noticed this today.  Who is Bing?

WillWeaverRVA:
No clue, but Bing is Microsoft's latest attempt to compete with Google. Odds are they picked it because it seems like a simple yet catchy name.

agentsteel53:
typo for bung.

I don't get a widescreen layout there at all.  It looks like Live Search Maps with new graphics.  Just replace the word "Live" with "Bing" for Microsoft's former "Live" services.
