That is cool, but when am I ever going to need to use that feature?

The pano's are okay quality but someone spent a lot of time and money to do this.

If I had an office building there, I would be afraid that someone can case the joint without even stepping foot in the city. The only way to track someone casing the joint would be to trace IP addresses, but I don't think Google does that...

You guys are so bloody pesemistic!!! Chill out guys not everyone is waiting for you to come along so they can rob, harm you and run off with your daughter even though the news tells it like that. There are so many more nice people in the world than the other kind.

It's a cool feature if you want to see how different streets are in different countries at least.

There is far more to the US than NY. By far...

In fact, when I go there, it feels like a foreign country (not in a good way). I much prefer country over city. Better driving too

I agree, I'm not a NY kind of guy, just too crowded, I'm not a country guy either, but I prefer smaller cities to bigger ones. All my cousins from England loves NY, maybe b/c it reminds them of home away from home. idk
