Google Maps Says “Cheese”

Nice. Google Maps has integrated the Keyhole photographic data set into its local search. To see (literally), do a map search and then click the word Satellite in the top-right corner. The resulting images are zoomable and scrollable, just like normal Google maps.
How useful is it? I don’t know, but I just discovered that my neighbor has a tennis court. I didn’t know that.
