google map

you know how google map had the whole satellite thing where you can see the streets, buildings and stuff. depending on when the satellite took it, you see cars sometimes too. well, they went a step ahead and created "street view." i'm not exactly sure how they did it... but i think it's kinda scary looking up my address and seeing my house....

here's a site about some funny photos

i looked up my dad's store and noticed the christmas tree at the window. i guess they took these pictures some time since dec till now lol damn my dad for not taking it down!

then i looked up work and saw my coworker's car outside.

well i guess now we can look up stores/restaurants/etc at this map and get a good idea what we're exactly going to look for.

i think the photos stay the same. it's not live. maybe they change it every 5 years?

yeah but i think the photos arent live. so that's good. :) the few that i've looked at (my work, my house, dad's store), it looks like they made sure not to get ppl in the photo.

altho i dunno why they left that pic of the girl and her underwear... maybe they didnt noticed since she was in the car?

It's a nifty feature, but you gotta think about that big Google eye staring at your house, lol My street's not available for street view yet though.

yeah i'm still wondering how they took the pics?

but i feel a little better knowing the photos arent LIVE. it's the same one no matter when you look at it. so no stalkers can see you HAHA and what's the point of looking at teh street if it's dark right?

that's too bad about your street. or a good thing? hahah but i'm sure eventually your street will be up there too.

There's apparently a van or something going around the city taking pics.

I'm OK with my street not being up. I know what it looks like, LOL

Haha, I just realized how shady that sounds. Some [possibly] unmarked van going around taking pictures. :P
