It’s the dang Street View issue again. Latest is that Google has announced that people in Germany have a month to opt out of the Street View program and have their homes not appear on the service. Just have them erased. This despite the fact that their homes are real and visible from the public eye if you’re walking down the street. There’s already a plan in place to fuzz out any faces or license plates that Street View sees. So the Germany Google presents is one where everyone has a smudgy face and houses disappear into thin air.
