Zillow.com has a listing of famous houses ranging from the Beverly Hillbillies mansion to the Playboy mansion, the Brady Bunch house, and the Beverly Hills 90210 home. All of the write-ups have aerial photographs, an estimated value and some general information about the property. You can also take the addresses from Zillow and feed them into Google Maps to get a street view, overhead satellite view and more. For example, here’s a Google Maps view of the Beverly Hillbillies mansion at 750 Bel Air Rd Los Angeles CA 90077.
Zillow also has some Famous Homes of U.S. Presidents – though for some reason they’re less interesting.

On May 24th 2009, Lifelock’s services were ruled to be illegal by a federal court. The judge stated that Lifelock has been breaking California law for years by placing fraud alerts on its customer’s credit profiles.
Lifelock’s CEO Todd Davis appeared on The Today Show back in May of 2008 stating that the claims that his identity has been repeatedly stolen were false. Todd Davis advertises his own social security number, 457-55-5462, as evidence of his firm’s prowess at protecting against identity theft – but reports have been emerging that his identity has, in fact been stolen. Matt Lauer even produced a list of some 87 people who had applied for driver’s licenses using Davis’ identity.
Considering that former co-founder Robert J. Maynard was something of a thief himself, is any of this really surprising?
