Google streetview; does it bother you?

Google streetview; does it bother you?
I've been reading a lot of the google streetview (GSV) privacy concerns and while the claim
that if people don't like it, they shouldn't go out in public has some merit, what happens
when you can see in windows?

I was curious about this aspect of GSV so I surfed off to one of the GSV enabled cities and began
my peeping Tom expedition. In some cases where a window is in shade so that glass reflection is minimal,
a view inside people's homes can be obtained. If GSV ever develops a night view, being in an uncurtained
well lit room would be like living in a fish bowl - a frightening thought indeed. I'm not sure I like GSV whatsoever.

On another note, learning more about this has revealed that the company that created the technology is a local
Calgary based company. I wonder how the employees of this company would feel if I snapped pictures of all their
cars in the parking lot, as well as their faces as they exited their workplace at quitting time, with a promise I MIGHT
be able to blur our SOME of the faces and licence plates?

If I'm not working Monday, I'll be finding that out. I really hope they call the cops on me.

A friend on Xfire gave me his location and I looked it up.
I could see in a 360 degree view of everything! Really good quality image.
Looks like your actually standing there.
But haha! It is wrong here where I live.
I put in the address of my old house and its streetview is that of the radio tower nearby.
I put my current address and it is showing a house couple streets down. lol it is seriously flawed out here in the public.
Google makes enough money to run their own government! I would stop using gmail and google.
I use something called Scroogle.
The one goal I carry is to help as many people as possible. People often ask me if I can talk. Many believe that I am a mute. Others regard me as genius.

If it was live I would be. But the current picture is of two summers ago when I planted some really nice stuff in front of the house and the yard is picked up! My car currently isn't there but my wife is home.

My friends house has him washing his car.
I've also seen a shooting or something of the sort in detroit and drug deal in nevada and alot of people pissing and shitting on the roadside. There was a site dedicated to these images at on point because google just deletes anything like that till they get new shots.

I've also used it to scope out jobs before going to shitty houses. I imagine a thief could use it to plan a heist too.

This would make a very creative porno. Like you could zoom in from space down to a house and through a window and catch some people screwing like bunnies LOL!!! GOOGLE EARTH PORN!:P
In the 60's, people took acid to make the world weird. Now the world is weird and people take Prozac to make it normal.

As a reputed atheist, the reverential nature of his film was surprising, but Pasolini himself said &If you know that I am an unbeliever, then you know me better than I do myself. I may be an unbeliever, but I am an unbeliever who has a nostalgia for a belief.&
