We explored the world from a satellite view.
We enjoyed the building elevations from cardinal directions with maps.live.com in axonometric projection of the Bird’s Eye feature.

But now enjoy this:
Street View

Click on the new “Street View” button. You can see the States with a few camera icons on cities. Click one camera and then “Zoom In”. Drag the orange man icon on a blue bordered street and… you’re on the streets!
Look around in 360°, drive along or navigate on to another street once you reach the center of an intersection, zoom around!

And the amazing zoom is the problem: it seems it could violate someone’s privacy. Here’s an example with a man entering an Adult Bookshop.
Specially in San Francisco: at the moment the preview features 5 cities only, San Francisco -as far as I can appreciate- has the most detailed imagery, even the double compared to other four cities’ zoom.

A crowd of bloggers started to post the most curious views a few hours after the feature went live, so if you have any, feel free to share.
