Default Kinda Scary...........

Found this "Streetview" on google Earth.
Google Maps

Type in your address and click on "streetview" go for a walk up and down your street. Click and drag and you move quicker.

So what do you think?
I think it's a little creepy.....somewhat "Orwellian" don't you think?

Was the author George Orwell really a 'ghost writer' name for Orsen Wells?
I never thought about this until I put the first part of both Orson Wells first and last names together.

I can't believe nobody thinks the 'Google' streetview isn't creepy....

That don't update that often. Google Earth still show my old house. Changed it a year and a half ago. Sort of like a time machine really.

I just found this last week, in the "streetview" it's like walking down your street.
I can go all the way around my cul-de-sac in a 360 degree view.

The street link only shows up if they have driven through your area. No worries in my area, no where near populated enough.
