    Google Maps "Street View" ...very cool

    Anyone try the new street view on Google Maps?
    I think its only available in big cities maybe (try NYC like zip 10040).
    It lets you see actual street level pictures and people walking by and cars.
    then you can zoom and rotate (3d view) on the street too!
    Amazing....i hear they are adding sound to it in the near future so you can hear what its like to be there.

    I happened upon it today when looking for directions. It's pretty neat. Works for San Francisco, as well.

    Yeah, I think that came out about 2 days ago, or at least for NYC.

    And the resolution for the San Fran pictures is a lot better than what NYC has, can't see the perverts as clearly

    And I think Microsoft did something similar a few months or even a year ago. But I remember the pictures were pretty bad and it wasn't nearly as easy to navigate.

    I would be paranoid, if I were deluded enough to actually think someone cared about my mundane existence.


    "Look...he's reading again...no, no I think he's writing...now he's petting the dog...looks like he's frustrated about something...okay...okay, he's definitely back on BikeForums again..."

    Who cares?

    Yeah, my friend showed it to me a couple days ago. Awesome.

    It seems like I think of things and say, "Wouldn't that be the coolest thing ever if ... *insert ridiculous cool idea* ? But that would be impossible," then Google does it 3 months later.

    Also look at the lady in the passenger seat of the truck passing the Google van. "Why the hell are you driving so slow, and what's that thing on the roof?"
