Google needs press? Show me a man that knows not of google, and I show you a man that lives in a cave.

The Yuqui people of Bolivia. They live in a national park, and so are mostly protected from people trying to make contact with them (who would carry disease from which the natives have no immunity).

And do not show me the man who lives in a cave/house. I already watched a special on that guy.

I somehow doubt Google is trying to reach the Yuqui people.

Incidentally, the man found the cave via google.

What would also be funny, is if the google guys didn't know about this before hand. The driver might be the next "layoff" if that be the case lol.

[citation][nom]Pei-chen[/nom]What cellphone was he using? That's some amazing picture by cellphone standard.[/citation]

Talking about European cellphones, it's probably one of those high-end Nokias...

Look up Laguna Seca raceway in California. The track allowed a streetview car a lap or two with some ALMS cars. I think they're kinda cool shots, personally. Although they didn't post any pictures of the 'cork screw' section of the track.

Volvo V70 T5 police cars are sweet, BTW. I wish America could have such cool law inforcement vehicles. Although some states have Camaro SS, Dodge Magnum or Charger highway patrol cars.

you know... that might make a good cover for a stalker/theif... pose as a google view car while casing a prospective mark... brilliant! so i pose... should google have one of their lackey's pull a heist on a local s&l and post the mayhem on their site? would make for the most excellent of advertisements if i ever said so, and i do. and for those wondering about the need of google advertisement in general, please, don't be so arrogant as to believe every soul in this tarnished nation or world has a internet connection or PC capable of viewing their injected ads! or home for that matter with this eco-ma-con-oh-me!

I keep all my cars parked inside. They can take a million photos of the front of the house for all I care. I don't think there's a big issue with google, anyone can come by and photograph a house. People just need more stuff to complain about is all.

My friend from the UK has a phone with an 8.1mp camera. Insane when you consider my DSLR is only a 6mp. The lens quality makes up for it though...

Dude, the law in the US said you can take any picture in most public places like street and stuff. It's not like they went into your house and took a bunch of photos. The Google satellite map images is awesome. Don't like it? Move to Canada and $hut up. What sup with Google car being chase. Feel kinda sad for the guy who drove that car he just wanted to earn an honest living.

Godwin Street? Are you serious? I bet the conversation went something like this Officer: "Sir, do you know you were in a taxicab lane and your car is not a taxi?" Googler: "Sure, you know who else said 'only taxicabs can use the taxicab lane'? That's right. Hitler."
