Have You Google 'Street Viewed' Your House Yet?

Have You Google 'Street Viewed' Your House Yet?

Google's new "Street View" feature, which allows users to click on maps in major cities and get real images of the street, has been causing a real ruckus this week, with people reporting strange and even scandalous images - such as a man leaving a strip joint and Stanford girls sunbathing - caught on the map's "street views." While my house doesn't show anything particularly creepy or invasive, one woman from Oakland, California shared her story of finding her cat on the map to the New York Times and even admitted she and her family feel like they are being "peeped on."

While the Street View feature currently only works around major cities like San Francisco, New York, Las Vegas, Miami and Denver, there are literally millions of people whose homes, cars, cats and even bodies could have been caught on camera. What do you think about this?

I am amazed at the clarity of my cul-de-sac. It is street level, and based on the details. It is clearly fairly current, in the last 3 months at the very least.

I haven't tried it yet but I do like the idea. I'm sorry that people feel invaded. I suppose you shouldn't be doing anything outside your house that you don't want a complete stranger to see. =(

I live too far out in the country. They don't even have the nearest major city to me on Street View.
