New Google service: Streetview!

Well its not so much a new service altogether, but a huge addition to the existing Google Map service. On selected Cities throughout the US you can now navigate through cities and get a photographic view of what the area looks like, and you can even turn a full 360 degrees! You simply navigate around the maps with the little guy i have circled in red, and up pops a photo of the area.

I really think this is an amazing new feature that brings the maps to life and gives real entertainment, another notch on the belt for the the serial innovators up in Mountain View CA.
Hats off to you fine sirs!
The pic I have there is of the Apple shop I visited while in New York not too long ago, on the left of the photo is the entrance to Central Park.... oh the memories.
