Google Street View

Like a number of people, I was a bit dubious about Google Street View. If you want to see what a place looks like, there are enough photographs on the web for you to find, why would you want to go look at bad photographs taken by a passing car? However, where Street View does come into its own is when coupled with driving directions in Google Maps: for each intersection, you can have a picture of what it looks like with an arrow that tells you where to go. This is a fantastic visual aid when going to a place you are not familiar with.
