I just had a peek, and I'm gobsmacked. It really is the future. Guess I can put my money in the bank and not have to go on holiday just to check out the Eiffel Tower when I have Street View!

I am actually looking to buy a house at the moment and I can't explain how useful this technology will be in my house search. The ability to look at the surrounding area of the house at street level without having to actually be there is mind boggling! I'll be saving a lot on my petrol thanks to this :mrgreen:

how often will the photos be updated? i'm hoping the Rundle Convergence gets included soon after completion...
Opportunity is missed by most people because it is dressed in overalls and looks like work.

KC Laser hatch... cost $500. And it's staying on SA plates because there's no way it'd pass the compulsory roadworthy inspections we have here!
