Google Streetview
« on: March 19, 2009, 05:37:30 pm »
Google Streetview has now gone live for major cities in the UK. Most of London seems to be covered, the photos are remarkedly detailed.

I saw a Google camera car in Peplins Way the other day so I expect it won't be long before the whole country is photographed and put online too.

I thought it was a bit pathetic blurring the faces of people.  I didn't realise quite how pathetic until I checked Old Trafford (home of Association Football World Club Champions) and saw that the faces of players on a billboard were blurred out too.

Now is that because they do it with face recognition software, or employ idiots?
