Anyone else see the Bing street view cars?

3rd time I saw them this week. Happened to be at a friends gas station when one pulled up. Spoke to the driver (missing his right hand btw :eek) and he said they're working this area. Anyone else see them driving around? Snapped a couple of pics.

I was outside when one passed my house two months ago. The site has still not been updated for street view in my area as of today.

That'd be a pretty interesting job, especially if you got assigned sh*tty parts of town.

As much as I hate Bing, their maps are actually pretty good when zooming in.

I peeked inside the car. Laptop computer set up, couldn't see any hard drives, though I glanced momentarily. The driver was missing his right hand from the wrist on up.
