    So that would essentially make it Stream View instead? ;)

    Sounds cool. If I don't see heaps of anacondas and jaguars on it I will be very disappointed.

    As long as people doesn't think that in Brazil we all live in jungles (as I was asked tons of times), it is fine. :D

    That's actually pretty cool. Considering the amount of time it took them to do my street (about 2 years after the rest of Milton Keynes was done) I'm surprised they're moving into less conventional viewing fare so soon.

    I thought Brazil just had a thin strip of trees down the middle?

    what about amazon women.. if I was controlling the cam there would be a midget in every other shot.. people will get the wrong idea and come to see for themselves

    maybe more off the wall stuff that will get people scratching their heads.. like a actor swinging in the trees on the tree border and a lot of zoo animals

    For a sec, I thought it was talking about the site Amazon duh!! How douche of me!

    Seems a pretty nifty concept and idea and since the world is in a recession maybe we can travel to the Amazon just by sitting on the chair and play where's the jaguar or where's the anaconda! Looking for maimed locals is considering cheating so please stick to the animals in a non killing situation!

    I heard some of the monkeys complained about their trees appearing on street view.
