Really depends on the source of the satellite imagery.

Google for examples purchases or leases its satellite imagery from a number of imagery providers such as GeoEye and DigitalGlobe. Google updates it imagery on Google Earth and Google Maps once or twice a month but not the entire globe at once.

Bing Maps (previously Live Search Maps, Windows Live Maps, Windows Live Local, and Microsoft Virtual Earth) is Microsoft's web mapping service. New updates are released on roughly a monthly basis.

What program can you use to spy on the earth?

Google Maps and Yahoo Maps both have satellite pictures of all areas of the earth. You can zoom in close enough to see cars - but not much more detail than that. In addition to that, the stills used in the photos most of the time are old. Google and yahoo only update the pictures every so often (sometimes once every 3 years) to their sites. They also only update them when they get enough requests for a particular area.
