I don't know if you have looked at this recently, but google maps has added a "street view" feature to some of its locations. Right now if you "google" my address, you get the option of "Street view" which shows you a picture of my house...like you are standing right out front! I have tried this for some friends I have back east and it doesn't seem to be available there yet.
Wow...big brother really is watching.
I wonder how and when they do this though. Our tree is still out front, and my car is in the driveway...so that would suggest sometime early in 2008 before I was working full time...but before we chopped our poor dead tree down.
Google your address and see if it is an option....
