Google maps- Street View

Google's new street map facility on the UK's biggest cities is pretty cool.

I used it on the streets of Manhattan a while back but not knowing the area well enough my interest didn't last long.

It is fun checking out various places but once you've had a look at all your old houses it loses much of it's appeal too.

I think all the stories about some of the photos getting pulled are quite funny.

A guy being sick, a guy going into a sex shop, a guy getting arrested. And all for the world to see. Ha, ha, ha! Hopefully it's not the first stage of a giant google cctv camera network with streams of video vans clogging up the already congested cities.
