In case you've just been unfrozen from a glacier, let me be the first to tell you about Google Maps. Not only do you get a click-and-drag interface which is 1000% more user-friendly than Mapquest, but with the push of one button you can toggle between maps and satellite photos of virtually any region in the United States.
Not too shabby, although it would be nice to have scrollable maps for... um... the rest of the world? C'mon, Google!
In the meantime, why not take a gander at where I work.
(Hint: It's the big honking building in the center of the map!)
