It's been a while since we've done one of these, so I thought I'd give everyone a little refresher. The staff at YesButNoButYes searches through Google Maps and picks out interesting images from Google's satellites. (The same satellites we can no doubt assume they're using to monitor our thoughts.) We then cut out the rest of the map and ask you, the people, to guess what (and where) the image is. This time we've grouped together some modern buildings, some are easy, some are hard, and some are really hard. So it's up to you to determine the name of the building and where on our fair planet it sits.

No wagering.

2 is a riddler. It looks kind of campusy. Some sort of business office/campus...

said E on June 17, 2009 6:42 PM.

#2: Apple HQ in Cupertino? (Going off E's office/campus comment, at first I was thinking Microsoft, but it looks too sunny for Washington.)

And also...wow, you've done XIII of these now? That's a lotta Google maps eyeballin'!
