Exciting stuff!

Walking back from the post office this morning Little Guy and I noticed a strange car approaching. It had what appeared to be a siren strapped to the roof on a long pole. Weird, I thought. As it drove past I caught sight of a tiny sign in the window GOOGLE MAPS. Wow, cool, I will soon be able to give directions to my place with pictures! AND it has just occurred to me that I may be in the pictures!!

  1. Congrats I guess. That whole Google street view thing kind of creeps me out. I guess it would be nice to have actually seen a picture of the building I am looking for but I also feel it is kind of an invasion of privacy, yk? We live in a high-rise so you can't see our specific condo, but you can see plenty about the building.

  2. Wow, I wondered what the camera cars looked like. We've had our house taken - I'm glad it was after Mr B had done the weekend gardening! The photo of my brother's house shows he and his family preparing for a bike ride out the front. I've also heard of cases in the US where photos have been taken where people were being arrested outside their house! Ew.

  4. I have been using Streetview to make sure I know where I am going when I go to Tokyo later this month. This function makes it really useful. However, it was a bit of a shock to see clearly up to our front door when I checked my own house. I am just glad the kids weren't playing outside...

  5. I finally checked out my house on street view. They filmed it a couple of months back. I hope they update it in a year or so as we are still renovating. Its already changed since. Have a look, but just remember my house looks much better inside.
