I have been meaning to mention, I go to weather.com almost daily, and have been very impressed with the new weather map powered by VE.
(This is an aside but for a long time it seemed weather.com was messed up and very slow due to the ads so I was using Yahoo weather, either weather.com has cleaned up it's act or the technology/my bandwidth and cpu have cought up.)
You get to the text/pitch below by clicking on a link above the map, makes me wonder if weather.com got a very good deal in exchange for the promotion of VE.
