A9: “Never been done before?”

A9: “Never been done before?”.

My bullshit meter went off when I was watching the A9 video
about how they added photos to their yellow pages search, and how
something like this had “never been done before.” Uh, yeah. That's

My old apartment in Madrid.
That's from a yellow pages service called QDQ in Spain. You can pan and
zoom and walk around all of madrid, with photos on all sides every 10
meters. I posted about that *years* ago. Nice to see Amazon is catching
up with some random Spanish yellow pages company.

Just another heads up that the U.S. isn't the center of the technical
universe, try as we might. Not that A9's thing isn't cool, it's just
far from the first.   [Russell Beattie Notebook]
