The day I decide to blow up a building, I'll be using Google Street View to get all kind of images from such building, comfortably and anonymously from my sofa.
And getting serious for a moment, I think you have touched on something very real there.
My son was showing me his new abode the last time he was here in Spain; it was amazing to see how clearly all the escape routes from his property were wide open to the view of every thief in Glasgow, ditto for everyone else who owns any real estate or actually lives in anything other than a tree.
It beggers belief that, somehow, such information is of actual use to anyone else - a clear invasion of privacy and security, and that's how it will always remain in my opinion, at least. Just another expensive answer looking for a problem that didn't exist. Progress, remember?
