CUPERTINO, California (AP) -- As software rivals, Microsoft wants to wipe Apple Computer Inc. off the map.


With Microsoft's new Web service for satellite photographs, the world's largest software company has sort of achieved its goal.


Internet sleuths discovered that anyone using Microsoft's new "Virtual Earth" Web site for a bird's-eye view of Apple's corporate headquarters saw only a grainy overhead photograph of a single warehouse and a deserted parking lot.


Apple's sprawling campus and eleven modern buildings -- nowhere to be seen.


Microsoft is blaming an outdated photograph for the oversight.
