Google Street View Of London

This week Google launched Street View for the UK for their Maps service. You’ll probably have seen in the news that people have been up in arms complaining about it being an invasion of their privacy even though Google have gone out their way to blur peoples faces. I don’t really get the privacy issue personally, if I take a picture in London I can put it up on Facebook, MySpace and a billion other places but that’s neither here not there.

Why am I telling you and why is this exciting? Well if you are doing the knowledge then its a fantastic tool for doing a virtual drive of London from the comfort of your own home.

There are a few ‘interesting’ pictures that the Google car has captured. I’ll post those shortly.
