Streetview Germany

without comments

I can’t believe this! Germany entered the scene on the digital globe today! Congrats! Google Streetview is finally life! Although it seems Google had some trouble keeping the good quality. Many images are blurred or even black, strange – how come? ;-) ….. Oh! whats that?!? Look what I found!!! F.A.T. patrol is on Steetview OMG! yes true, I heard they tagged the car with a GPS last February … what?!? They even hijacked it?!?! (http://fffff.at/google-street-view-car/don t miss the video) …

Update:

OMG! It seems that Google for one day even considered to run Streetview in Germany as a paid premium service … it would make sense! They spend so much extra money on ‘post production’ ;-)

The Streetview page was blocked and the text says something like ‘Due to the high effort in picture editing Google Germany has decided to run  Google Streetview as a paid premium service….”  The page was up for only one day and for some strange reason they list themselves now as a phising attack ?!? see yourself http://goo.gl/Nk9Ca . Probably trying to blame someone else ;-)
