Google street view. Creepiest thing ever?
 
Just Google map something and hit street view.

You can't use this view everywhere, but I can see most of Philly with it... Including my house with my car parked outside...

Anyone else find this a little creepy?

Nahh not really. Check out www.local.live.com Type in your address, and click bird's eye view, even better. ;)

Nahh, generally once every year or 2. The most current one of my house has my '87 Fiero SE in the driveway, so that was in Dec '06.

Google Earth (install the software) has much higher res in my area than locallive.

and if you want to see it all the same...with less features...and use less system resources..

http://www.flashearth.com/ (recommended)

yeah, for the most part, my area is all old, low res, but they took a new line from green bay down to around where i live in 2005. glad i made it just inside there.
