MVE Gives Up the Top-Secrets


So, let me get this right: I can fire up my Microsoft Virtual Earth and navigate my way to see classified military secrets? I guess so, as Ogle Earth shows us. A Nautical fan named Dan did just that, finding a satellite image of an Ohio-class US sumbarine with a new, secret propeller design. When the submarines are out of the water, the props are supposed to be covered up. Oops.

So far the Navy’s been mum on the issue. Were Steve Jobs an admiral, Dan would have gotten his crappy cease and desist order by now, we’re sure.
