Well, from what I can tell in my time zone (where it's about 11pm PDT, still April 1), we're not in Topeka any more.
3D view has disappeared. I do have 3D glasses because a lot of the NASA Mars and Cassini Saturn images are in 3D, and I like to look at them... and, yes, there was a fairly convincing 3D effect on the street view images.
We had a very short discussion about Google Street View in 3D [webmasterworld.com], and I'm anticipating Google will eventually make some use of 3D modeling in maps and street view... which could ultimately evolve into a walk-through/drive-through or fly-over that's viewable in either 2D or 3D.
All they need to do is to map the universe in data points. ;)
This may have been a mild test of some of the technology along the way, as well as a joke.
