Amazon Finds That Driving Around The World Taking Pictures Every Few Feet Isn't Worth it

"Amazon hasn't gotten very far in its stab at the search industry. Just about the only thing that A9 is known for is its attempt to combine local search and on-the-ground pictures. But driving around to collect pictures is an expensive process, and so far, it's Google's simple maps that have become the standard for visually representing local search."

Duh. No kidding?? I wonder how long DeepPockets MS will continue to take aerial photos. I keep noticing helecopter hovering closer to the house... but maybe that's something else.

Getting out my tinfoil hat.
