    Stratocam is a site that lets you take snapshots of images you find on Google Maps!

    What’s even more fun is that you can rate each others’ photos.

    *TIP*: To explore Google Maps, pause the slideshow. Scroll up and down with your mouse to zoom in and out. Hit the camera button when you find something!

    If When Facebook Runs Your Television Advertising

    A London voucher code company put out a pretty nice hoax product called Hearscreen over the weekend. They imagined a world in which televisions’ built-in microphones listened in on conversations and then displayed discount-code advertisements based on what you were talking about.

    The whole thing might sound ludicrous. On the other hand, this is precisely (precisely!) how Facebook works. 

    While you have conversations with your friends, Facebook “listens” (in the parlance of this hoax) and presents you with contextual ads based on what you’ve said. Mention your engagement and you’ll be shown engagement gear. Mention your interest in basketball and you could be shown jerseys.

    What’s fascinating about Hearscreen is that it is not only plausible, but predictable. The things which had held it back were: 

    1) The TV-microphone install base, which is coming, 
    2) Reliable voice processing, which you may have heard is now coming installed in just about every phone, and 
    3) An ad market to develop to buy and sell these kinds of contextual ads. 

    The last thing is the toughest part, but it’s also what Google and Facebook specialize in, and you know they want to and will be on and in your television. 

    Add all that up and the Hearscreen concept — contextual advertising based on real-life conversations you’re having — will happen.
