A post at tech crunch reports that Microsoft has unveiled a new, fancy feature in Microsoft Live Search Maps through which 9 cities including NYC and other places in U.K., Canada and America appear in a photo-like, 3-Dimensional map.

This is a great boost for Microsoft to stay ahead and fresh in the race as their competitors still do not have this feature.

For now, available cities on Microsoft Live Search Maps are NYC; Austin, Cape Coral (Florida); Cincinnati, Indianapolis, Northampton (UK), Ottawa, Savannah and Tampa. One user writes, "The fact that they got this out before Google, considering how long Google has had the ability to do this is a real shot in the arm. Dare I say it, way to go Microsoft."
