Google Earth is Shiny, but so is Amazon Streets
Sure, Google Earth is cool. I paid them their $20 and the new 15m imagery is slick. I can see how a savvy real estate agent would dig it.
Here's Amazon's view of the Benson Hotel in Portland. Make sure you click on the "Walk up and Down the Street" buttons. Weird eh? They even have a "click to call" link where they will broker a call to you, because dialing the phone yourself would just be too hard.
There be some interesting stuff going on. Next step, Virtual Earth.
