GeoEye supplying imagery to Google

My soon-to-be-old-company just announced a deal to give exclusive imagery to my-soon-to-be-rival. Sweet! I am a little disappointed Microsoft didn’t get it, but I don’t know any details of how the deal happened.

The GeoEye-1 satellite will be the highest quality commercial satellite out there when it launches next week. I am a little sad I’ll miss the launch party (my last day is the 2nd of September), but the date is what it is.
