Google Earth makes Private Investigators a little more obsolete

Saroo Brierley, an Indian-born Australian businessman, was adopted at age five, but continuously experienced vivid flashbacks of the Indian town he grew up in. Thanks to Google Earth, he was able to use these memories to identify the town, and eventually locate his birth mother. Naturally, Google has capitalized on this feel-good story, and has utilized it as a three-minute video advertisement.

All snark aside, it is truly amazing that this man was able to use technology available to anyone, and pinpoint a location and person in a country of billions.
