Why Trade Me went with Google Maps: Street View

There you go, the Street View reason why Trade Me went with Google Maps in favour of Smaps:
Street View
While I have reservations about Google turfing out locally developed stuff (Smaps was done by ProjectX in Wellie), you can't fault Trade Me for picking a technology like Street View to enhance its property pages. It works great and adds that killer touch to listings for property buyers and sellers. Street View on Trade Me is the final nail in the coffin for print property ads, easily.
