Hey, so Microsoft is showing off a new urban 3-D view on their Live.com maps. A tipster emails this insta-review: "After a lengthy download and lots of instructions before and after, I finally am looking at a 3D map of New York. However, it looks like Google Earth, with a few exceptions. Takes a long time to load the buildings." Worse, Gothamist points out that the maps only work in Internet Explorer on PCs. But oh, what a skyline!
