    Beyond the novelty, what’s the value of this? If I really care to see the pictures, I’d rather have real, high-res, not moving pictures. Brad mentions that they try to sell to real estate agents. I sure hope the agents used this in conjunction with normal images, not as a replacement. But I have seen too many sites use flash as a replacement for what would be just fine as HTML (e.g. the menu of a restaurant) to have any illusion here.
