Google snapper sent packing
Read this in the paper this morning:
"A gaggle of residents in the affluent hamlet formed a human chain to turn away a car shooting images for Google Street View, the popular service that allows Internet users to see high-quality photos of houses and streets around the world...."
"I was upstairs when I spotted the camera car driving down the lane," villager Paul Jacobs told the Times of London newspaper. "My immediate reaction was anger: How dare anyone take a photograph of my home without my consent?"
"Google says the technology is legal, useful and non-intrusive. To preserve privacy, individuals' faces and car license plates are obscured by pixelation."
Such a lie. The majority of images are unblurred, only a few, seemingly random images are actually blurred. And most are blurred pretty shakily...such as only some faces, or some notfaces.
