Did you know that on google earth, you can now see street views of stuff? it's pretty weird. You could find out someone's address, find their house, and act like you're watching them or something. I just think it's kinda creepy. and useful if someone rips you off on ebay.
But still, is it worth google's money to send people driving all over the country, taking pictures of every direction out of a vehicle just so people can see what people are doing sitting on their front porches on one random day of the year, or to see what kind of cars a random neighborhood has? I would hate that job.
