    Default Why is nobody there?

    I would think that the Google campus would be a bastion of dedicated workers 24/7.

    They are such showoffs, trust them to use 7 times the res on themselves..

    Question why only here?

    why don't they have this res. for all the places?
    Is there a difference in cost or is it because of privacy issues?

    Google dont actually take the images themselves alot of the time, they buy them off the local cities.. and yes, the higher the res the more expensive (Use digital cameras here as an example, you can get a 2 megapixel for about $200, but an 8 megapixel will set you back $1000+) SO it all depends on your cities preferences - and bank account!

    Given the 'fact' that they can read the dates on pennies, would such a resolution ever give way to some sort of privacy principle. For example we would all (well most) love to see Miss X nude sunbathing next to her swimming pool in the garden, but would she enjoy the image being available to an infinite number of GE users?

    Interesting point on the 'pennies' observation.

    What is the highest documented resolution, not sci-fi espionage stuff?
