Google Street View

Google Street View is now available in the UK, with lovely clear photographs. Some people are worried about the rather invasive nature of it, and certainly it means if you have a postcode of someone you can see exactly where they live - we'll see how it gets used. But you can also see what a restaurant or shop looks like before you head off, which might be handy.

There has been a lot of fuss about privacy but I think it's a great thing.

Agreed. I think it's excellent. But maybe that's because my road is so tiny, that they couldn't get a car down it.
