google earth

I'll admit it. I'm an armchair traveller. It's cheap, and I can go anywhere in the click of a mouse thanks to Google Earth. I'm addicted to it. It's fun cruising down a street and checking out the world that's outside my door.

But how recent are the street views I'm looking at? When I was in in LA in 2005 (Sunset Blvd to be precise), I saw a billboard for a show called The Triangle. It sounded good so as not to forget the title I snapped a photo. So this morning I noticed the same billboard in 2009. It got me wondering how often it updates. At the same token it was thrilling, if only for a second to see the same billboard.
