Subject: Big brother really is watching...

Written By: snozberries on 03/30/08 at 7:22 pm


I was playing with Google maps today and discovered the street view feature....

Its not in all cities or states but I found quite a few in LA and NYC...

I typed in 5th Ave New York, New York and got as close as I could with the map and then clicked on Street view...it gives you a 360 degree view of the street... pretty cool.

Yeah, in the street level view of my place, you can see my doorman standing outside the building. It's kind of funky and cool.

You can also get it set so that you can view photos people have taken of various landmarks.  Can't recall where in Google Maps it is

I know I have this thing, called "Google Earth", which allows you to see an aerial view of any location in the world, via satellite.

I was looking at a website that was associated with Google Earth, pointing the oddities on Earth and it had a section of close ups of people sunbathing.

Google Earth is really amazing... I really enjoy typing in various places around the world and getting a "bird's eye view". :)

I wasn't offended.
But the pictures are still small and long distance.
