Windows 8 and Tom Tom GPS traffic cam app doing their part for national security. The new traffic cam app makes it impossible for prying eyes to get too close to the White House.
Microsoft best known for their innovative and cutting edge operating systems and software has done it again with Windows 8 incorporating what is known as the Metro look feel and features. W8 is a feature rich operating system. One of the features is a convenient store of apps. Instead of continually traveling the Internet for the best and most useful software you want, they have included what is called the app store. Giving users the ability to buy or try the latest in new programs with a simple push of an install button, the user will be using their new software in minutes. One such software app is the new Traffic cam ran by TomTom GPS, offering the chance for the user to plug in the address or name and the map quickly takes them there.
The satellite view enables the viewer to get a detailed look of whatever area they want. Except one, which resides on Pennsylvania Ave, District of Columbia. That’s right, The White House. They have made it so if a viewer were to try and take a closer look at the entry area; it is pixeled out. The interesting note is attempting the same viewing in the Google maps application, met with no pixeling. The viewer is able to zoom in tight on The White House for a clear and detailed picture.
