You're Being Mapped

On the road again for a soccer tournament this weekend, and pulled into the hotel parking lot and saw an interesting vehicle. No, not interesting in that it was a real, live hydro-carbon fueled SUV. Cool because of the thing-a-ma-jigs all over it's roof.

That's a pretty dark picture. Maybe if they haven't headed out before me in the morning, I'll grab a better one. But, you've no doubt seen the street view option in Google Maps. Looks like Microsoft is getting into the game with Windows Live Local. Check it out here.

Those "thing-a-ma-jigs" look suspiciously like cameras.

I was just glancing through 'Blogging for Dummies,' and rule #1 is:

"Never OVER-estimate the intelligence of your readership."

Sorry. I thought we were the default blog for rocket scientist world-wide.

Like the cleaned up picture. I wondered how they were getting those street view shots. I don't like the idea of that, though. Seems like the perfect tool for stalkers.
