"Strreets" Basemap different in ArcDesktop vs ArcGIS-Online

Why is the "Streets" basemap in ArcGIS-Online different (and more accurate) than the "Steets" basemap in ArcDesktop 10.0? I noticed the discrepancy when looking at Houston TX. When viewed in AcrDesktop, the "streets" basemap is different and fails to render the entire Beltway-8 loop that encircles Houston. But, when viewed in ArcGIS-Online, the "street" basemap is accurate and looks slightly different.

I checked, and both basemaps call the same map service. Why does the "streets" basemap look substantially different in ArcDesktop versus ArcGIS-Online?
