Amazon’s A9 BlockView Search Discontinued

I am working on a web service mash-up, and I wanted to integrate with Amazon’s BlockView technology (part of the A9 Yellow Pages). BlockView allows you to type in a business address and see a picture of the actual storefront. Well it turns out at the end of September Amazon scrapped BlockView along with all their Yellow Pages. Doh! Interestingly enough, the CEO of A9 was snatched up by Google. I think BlockView would compliment Google’s other local search and mapping initiatives whereas it was an odd thing for Amazon to put such effort into.
