Default Google Street View

Anyone been messing with this? my area has been done, its spooky to be able to veiw ya house that way, seeing your car parked outside. Even if the streetview is not done yet the birds eye view is still great.
No street view for this yet,

If you see this car then wave like a loonie


If you don't see it pass you could be doing something like this

That's really spooky with the street view.
Just had a look at a few familiar places.

Not only can I see my washing in the porch of our house, I can be found sat on the wall near work, facing the Thames having lunch and reading a book

I think its TERRIBLE and yet amusing at the same time
THANK GOD my house is not visible ( as we are not on a road ).

I saw my friends house on there though and her son was clearly visible in her garden , which imo is WELL OUT OF ORDER! hes only little.

She was gobsmacked when i told her.

WELCOME TO THE WORLD OF THE REAL BIG BROTHER ... i have always maintained i agree'd with surevealance and I.D cards so i best keep my complaints to a low level

This whole thing is unnecessary.. Talk about big brother is watching you! This is a criminals dream come true,as they can all see exactly who's lead roof they want to strip off and what to break into.. It sounds a bit spooky being on film hanging me washing out..

Just had another look, I was able to see the house I used to live in before moving here. Still with the wall number plaque and flower boxes I had out front over 9 years ago.

Nice for me to reminisce and see places I hold close to my heart. That said, I don't feel really comfortable with this kind of detail available to the world. It's a great tool for less desireables.
