  Amazon hops on crowded web mapping service train
Amazon is throwing their hat into the somewhat crowded online maps service area. They do plan on doing something different and making their product unique. Amazon will be providing street level photos instead of the standard satellite-view fare. They already have $15 million photos in their database which covers 22 cities so far. This could take off for Amazon and really establish them as a budding new web techonology superstars. See how Amazon innovated while Microsoft duplicated? Yes Microsoft's service is pretty much the same as Google's. Goolge's is a touch better since their satellite pictures are actual somewhat up to date.
