    I checked out my house on Google Street Views and it looked horrible! The photo was taken in Jan when the whole neighborhood looked bleak and dreary. So, I turned around and checked out the rest of the street. A couple houses away, the photos were taken in spring. So the rest of the street looks beautiful! Lush, green, neat and wonderful.
    I got to thinking. If I were looking for a house to buy, and checked out my own house on there, I wouldn't dream of looking at my house because it looks like it's in a slum. The site could affect my ability to sell my house!

    Personally, I love street view and don't mind my house being on it! I am actually in a picture too, saw their car as it drove by and about 4-6 months later, my car showed up. Wish I had thought to do something wink

    I love using streetview when checking directions, because I can get a real look at what an intersection or turn will look like. Extremely useful...

    In regards to their mapping though, I think they definitely went about it the wrong way.

    They could have achieved the same sort of mapping by just keeping track of the names of the wireless networks. I think that would have been reasonable and is the logical thing to do. Capturing and storing all the packets was unnecessary and, I think, in poor ethics.
