From the ChrisD.ca e-mail bag:
“Why are you promoting the invasion of privacy? You should be ashamed of your ways.” — It’s not an invasion of privacy.
“Can you find out how much the city spent on Google coming here and taking pictures?” — Spent $0
“I found my car on Street View and the plate isn’t blurred. What do I do?” — You can report it to Google.
“Did the city approve Google coming here? Did they pay them?” — No approval needed, and no.
“How do I find my house on Google?” — Do you know what your home address is?
Other than that, most people understand what Street View is. A colleague of mine made mention that this will be a great tool for not only reporters, but police officers too. Surely, real estate agents are having a field day with this relatively new technology also.
And to take another jab at Citytv this week … this is the most promotion they’ve received in years.
