My bullshit meter went off when I was watching the A9 video about how they added photos to their yellow pages search, and how something like this had "never been done before." Uh, yeah. That's wrong.
My old apartment in Madrid. That's from a yellow pages service called QDQ in Spain. You can pan and zoom and walk around all of madrid, with photos on all sides every 10 meters. I posted about that *years* ago. Nice to see Amazon is catching up with some random Spanish yellow pages company.
Just another heads up that the U.S. isn't the center of the technical universe, try as we might. Not that A9's thing isn't cool, it's just far from the first.
