Google Earth and Microsoft Live Local Search not blurring out same sensitive areas

Interesting watching CNN news do a piece today on distorting imagery within Google Earth and Microsoft's Live Local Search. Its become apparent that the same areas are not obscured on both mapping sites. For example, The White House is blurred in the Microsoft app yet it appears quite clear in Google Earth.. there are also blurred images in Google Earth that appear un-touched in the Microsoft application. According to the report, the two companies will likely have to come together and have their commerical imagery providers provide blurred out imagery for the same sensitive areas.. sounds like some job opportunities to me!
