Any one see the CNN report about this. People are screaming invasion of privacy. They claim now someone will know what there house looks like. Also claiming easier for creeps to find them.

I thinks it's pretty cool. When traveling youll be able to see that when you need to turn what exactly is on the corner of such and such street

Somthing else people are mad about that they dont have your written permission to have you picture taken if you were walking on the sidewalk. People must have forgot its a public sidewalk

I can definitely see it being a good thing and a bad thing... For instance, it will be alot easier for thiefs to scope out a neighborhood, from the safety of thier desks. Now instead of suspisious looking cars driving slowly by while looking at your house, there might be suspicious looking guys looking at your house on a computer.
Technology is not always a good thing, especially when you're on the recieving side of the shaft.

A bank robber could scope out a bank in another town and see what exactly his get away would be.

I agree it's good and bad but nothing they can really do unless the goverment said somthing since they are doing it from public property
