Watch Where You're Going

Let's say you're in Dallas and you need a pair of boots. Sure you could use any number of "Yellow Page" services and even MapQuest for directions. But wouldn't it be handy to actually see the store?

Amazon thought so. They're building Block Views by driving a fleet of trucks around cities and actually snapping photos along the way. So far they've logged over 26 million photos in their effort to cover the entire United States.

Salmon in Seattle
iPod in New York
Sushi in San Francisco
Boots in Dallas
