where is the useful birds eye??

What happened to such a useful feature?  Why did Zillow trash it? When will zillow get some common sense and get it back?  Why doesn't zillow care?

The only thing they told me about why it is taking so long is the team of programmers that it was assigned to were busy fixing something else that they considered a higher priority.

(I'm actually convinced it had to do with a change in the parameters required by Microsoft Bing, since that is where the images are coming from, and likely the documentation for those parameters is not that good).

As far as the "secrecy", they have stated in the past that the Securities Exchange Commission doesn't allow them to state what they are working on nor time frames for "publicly traded companies" as it might be considered "insider trading info", and it especially gets them in trouble if they appear to make time line promises they are not able to keep.

(I don't really believe it, but then I haven't really studied SEC rules that carefully either.  Obviously any lawyer would recommend they err on the side of "caution" in their disclosures).

What's taking Zillow so long to fix it?  Why the secrecy?

Zillow knows they broke it back in June or July.  They stated they are expecting to have the direction choices back on line middle of November, but they are not planning on bringing back the choice to turn off street labeling.

the bird's eye view is obtained by clicking on the words "bird's eye" just above the map or photo (depending on what is in the prime spot on the home details page)
