    Haha, Australia got this last year and it caused a few articles and stuff around the net and media but everyones fine with it. Faces are blurred and its the same as someone going to your home, what you see is what you get. Its not x-ray :p

    Its pretty cool though Wonder how many years they update it?

    well

    i dont think its that cool
    it means anyone anywhere once they have your address they can find out where you live. including routes and directions to your home not to metion
    a nice colour photo of your home

    i dont think this is cool

    also over here in the uk it is now illegal to photo any police or law enforcements.
    but its ok for them to photo, cctv and now stick our homes on the web

    WHAT IS THIS WORLD COMING TOO

    Just think without Google Street level we wouldn't have had this great picture of ET.

    Its not available where I live and I hope it will be sometime before the Google camera cars arrive.

    .... but they can be filmed for TV programmes like police camera accident or cops with cameras then? Double standards there me thinks...
