Picture-full Yellow Pages

It looks like the thing the French did with their online yellow pages is now available on Amazon's yellow pages: Photos of the site you're looking up! It's only live in some cities, but everywhere I care about revisiting since living there is up (SF and Bay area, Seattle, NYC...) And I see they're using a technique I blogged before from intrepid Germans and South Africans: driving around with GPS and digital cameras.

Try it at the Yellow Pages on (I got a little teary-eyed when I looked up my favorite Seattle bakery and saw it there in the cloudy gloom: Larsen's Bakery, 3 blocks from my old apartment. Now, do I dare try Applewood Pizza in Menlo Park and Los Altos, or will it be too much for me?)
