Talk about getting caught on camera.

I hadn't heard this story but I have heard about a wife finding her husband's car parked in front of the building of "the other woman" which supposedly lead to the blurring of license plates. As well, in Japan apparently they are reshooting the street views because of complaints that the cameras were capturing pictures inside peoples' homes.

Street View is a pretty amazing use of technology but it does come with a price (some good, some bad) in terms of privacy.

Hahaha, I thought this topic was about something else before I clicked on it *blush*

That's one good thing I have read about Google Streetview... besides the 134234 other bad things about it.

I'm sure some people have! It's just a matter of time before someone finds them.
