Google maps

Google maps has added a feature that can mark (with small thumbnails) on the maps locations from which photos have been taken. Clicking on the thumbnail gives the full size photo. It appears anyone can submit photos for this feature which is a clever way to get people to generate content for free. I found the feature rather addictive as I checked what photos were available at various locations.

I guess this is old news but google also has a street level view feature for some locations which I found a bit creepy as I checked addresses of people I know.
