It's now officially announced/blogged/tweeted. We can still chat about it here. No details on the actual amount yet, though.

It's a bit patchy, though, too. Maybe it wouldn't make a huge difference. About 50/50.

Not for me. Most aerials in my neck of the woods are clearer and more recent in bing.
