Google Street View in Singapore


My home, as photographed by Google

So Street View has finally arrived in Singapore. To play with it, go to Google Maps and zoom in on a location (or drag the yellow man icon onto the map).

It’s relatively fun (and probably creepy) checking out your friends’ houses, if you know their addresses, but you can do the same for miscellaneous famous (or not) spots, too.

The creepiness that is Haw Par Villa – View Larger Map

I wonder how this makes money for Google? Are businesses able to pay to list their details on Street View, perhaps?
