Google Maps Street View

Google maps Street view is a relatively new feature that’s been added to google maps. As far as i am aware its still only in America at the moment and basically involves a google van driving around with a camera in its roof taking pictures so as to give a street view.

See this video for a better explanation

Its pretty neat however some people have been raising concerns about about privacy issues and to be honest i am not entirly sure what i think about it. There is no doubt that this feature could be useful and it is very intresting but would i like it so much if it was too my door? I don’t think really that i would. Theres nothing like a bit of NIMBYism [Not In My Back Yard] to make life intresting.

Lets just be glad it doesn’t go as far as this video

Well yet anyway.
