"Google to Buy Satellite Service Skybox for $500 Million to Improve Maps"

?Their satellites will help keep our maps accurate with up-to-date imagery," Google said in a statement. "Over time, we also hope that Skybox?s team and technology will be able to help improve Internet access and disaster relief ? areas Google has long been interested in.?
