This neighborhood in Boston looks like it was left in the oven for too long.

It's honestly amazing it even works at all. I still think it looks good. Except for the last picture.

Google Earth barely works anymore on Windows. It's like they discarded any regards for proper Windows programming.

Hrm, seems like Dot Matrix found yet ANOTHER flaw with Windows 8, but let me guess, its a feature that makes it easier and faster to use, and more stable? right? Starting to wonder about that coolaid....

Haha. Zoom in more, Trek. I can see from here, that it still looks the same. Even the parking garage and terminals are collapsed on yours as well, and I can still see that half those buildings look melted. Nice try. ;)
