It may business-related or not. I just want to hear the SaaS that was breath-taking to you the first time you saw it.
I have been playing around with Descript lately, and it's pretty breathtaking. Instantly pulled in my video, made a transcript, and then allowed me to magically remove my filler words and even replace mistakes by editing the text...it feels like sorcery.
Here's perhaps a funny one: Google Maps. For one, it's hard to imagine life without a GPS in your pocket, even if paper maps were still common enough just over a decade ago. It's almost equally hard to imagine life without the delivery services built on Google Maps and similar services.
I'll never forget how mind blowing Google Earth seemed when I first used it. And even today, Street View makes it just normal to look around any random place on earth. That’s magical.
I just discovered Historical Street View while looking at real estate. It's neat to see how neighborhoods evolve.
Can you use that in any street view location? I remember an article that had historic street view images of ... Detroit I think, and that was fascinating to look through.
I guess it depends on how many times the Street View car has snapped a pic at that location. The one data point up here in BC has 4 old images going back to 2009.
Ahh just found it: You open street view on any location, and if there's historic data there will be a small recycle icon in the top left under the address. Click that, and you can view Historic Streetview for any area where it's available (which, the random area I selected had 11 snapshots dating back to 2011).
Very cool, thanks for sharing! That's super nostalgic especially if your area's changed a lot in the past decade.

Three major considerations I have been using to evaluate the plethora of options available: 1. Effortless/non-intrusive: It shouldn't feel like a video call 2. Price: As this app would be complime...
+1 I came here to say the same thing about Descript!
I know, right? It's like the AI version of "jetpacks"...we have heard all these promises about how useful AI is going to be, and this is the first application where I see the value instantly.
@rhogroupee Ohh great call, you're right. Descript is like magic. I often use it just to find the section of text I'm looking for in a podcast recording—and the voice synthesis is also easily good enough to record full ads and shorter videos while sounding far less robotic than Siri.
You've built something awesome @andrewmason!
