Yeah, heard about it on the ABC news radio station last night. Apparently, the Aust Commissioner for Privacy, (or some such name) had discussions with Google Australia on the whole issue and blanking out number plates was one outcome, but the Com is far from satified. It was reported that Google Aus was far more helpful then the parent company. 

There's sure been a HELL of a lot of images taken. What a project!

Yeah, will come in Handy

It'll come in handy if you want to check out houses when you are looking to buy. You can move up and down the street and get an idea. If you have quite a few to look at, could save some time.

Wed, 2008-08-06 14:42

i bet another 10 or 15 years and they will be tapping into all the cctv camera's around and we'll have live video to everywhere... now that would be cool..... all they will need then is to give everyone access to the satalite camera's...

haha oh i think its cool

Wed, 2008-08-06 15:11

yeah i think its great but yes theories theories theories!!

i was reading in the paper today about it and the America version they apparently saw a lady exposing herself in a building and a man walking into an adult bookstore, which personally i think is hilarious lol!

i checked out my house and lucky you can only see my car but hanging an ass out of the window would be quite funny, once we find out when it updates it would be easy to do such humourous things lol.
