Yellow Pages: next generation

"The Amazon unit (A9) rolled up and down the streets of 10 major U.S. cities snapping the pictures of storefronts. Call up a business or an address at A9's Yellow Pages and you get a picture of the shop."


This is a clever way of 'listing' businesses, and I can also see potential here with regard to location based services. For instance, using a mobile device you try to find a specific shop based on its picture and at the same time you can look at reviews for that store submitted by previous customers.
