GooBing Detroit
A garage in northeast Detroit deteriorates. Lady waving to the street view car in the first image, c. 2009. Nearby the Heidelberg Project, and in the style, though not sure if a Tyree or not. Why Don’t We Own This? shows the property taxes haven’t been paid in a few years (makes sense…) and $2k+ is owed. The property is subject to foreclosure, but not in the auction this year. This block is incredible. The New York Times visited this block during the Motor City Mapping survey: "Blight, as Karl Baker, one Detroit resident, has seen, tends to spread. Most of the houses nearby are standing but abandoned, and visitors have clearly passed through — empty liquor bottles lie along debris-covered floors near broken windows and doors, every memory of a metal appliance or gutter seems to be gone from some of the homes, and two old couches that were dumped along a lawn are now blanketed by a thick layer of snow.

BitLocker Drive Encryption is an integral new security feature in the Windows Vista operating system that provides considerable protection for the operating system on your computer and data stored on the operating system volume.

Finding more mobile-friendly search results Webmaster level: all When it comes to search on mobile devices, users should get the most relevant and timely results, no matter if the information lives on mobile-friendly web pages or apps. As more people use mobile devices to access the internet, our algorithms have to adapt to these usage patterns. In the past, we’ve made updates to ensure a site is configured properly and viewable on modern devices. We’ve made it easier for users to find mobile-friendly web pages and we’ve introduced App Indexing to surface useful content from apps.
