Google Street View Snowmobile

Are you bored of having virtual road trips around the world on Google Street View? Don’t fret, as you can now have virtual ski trips instead. The Google Street View snowmobile will record ski slopes around the Whistler Blackcomb Mountains in Vancouver. Building on the idea of the Street View car and the Street View “tricycle”, Google had their inspiration of making a snowmobile from the upcoming Winter Olympics 2010. The Google Street View Snowmobile has that Google’s trademark camera attached to it, which records the physical world around the ski slopes. You should probably check out the video below:

    In behalf of my curiosity, I wonder how this Google Buzz fits in with Wave? There is no way Googlebuzz or Gmailbuzz, whatever you want to call it, is going to do anything to Facebook. It's the most popular social networking site there is, unless Google can make a better site – though they probably are capable. The way <a rev="vote for" title="Gmail Buzz (Googlebuzz) tackles social networking" href="Googlebuzzhttp://personalmoneystore.com/moneyblog/2010/02/09/gmail-buzz-googlebuzz-tackles-social-networking/">Googlebuzz</a&#62; is supposed to work is close to Facebook and Twitter, but it's just as much a bookmarking site like Digg. I'd even get payday loans to put a big bet down that FB isn't impacted by Google's entry into the social networking arena at all.
