MapJack: More Fun Than Google Street View

You've probably heard a lot lately about Google Street View, the privacy issues people have complained about, and so on. Now, MapJack beta has even more sharply-focused views and a cooler interface to boot.

The beta only covers San Francisco at this point, but when they spread out the site promises to be ultra cool and useful. Each street has a series of blue dots that represent points of view. By clicking on any one of them, the top half of the screen takes you there. You can even change the direction you're facing, since you can see an avatar-representation of yourself and where you're looking from.
