Coolest yellow page search - EVAR

A9 has a new feature so when you search for a business on their site, you can actually see a picture of it. How'd they do it? They set up computer-controlled cameras on top of cars and drove around the city.


Totally bad ass:

(Of course, there are some technical flaws - like you have to scroll around the block to find the exact picture, and sometimes the photo is obscured by a car or something on the sidewalk. But hey, it's a nice start, and with some tweaking this could be an excellent feature. Combine this with that webapp that lets you actually see a visual map of the city when you look up and address, and you can get a really good idea of what the place looks like without even going there.)
