    I’m no longer playing Flash content from random sources on the internet.

    Could you summarize the “Google threat”, please?

    Does it work at the White House and/or the Pentagon?

  3. Mojo says:

    Don’t be silly, Joe. The Pentagon uses Google Earth for that function.

    I just finished reading “Snow Crash” so I got a kick out of the video.
    My house in Palo Alto was one of the first to be on “street view”. The two big palms are gone now so they don’t update.
    I told friends that in several years it would be impossible to be nude in the backyard without impacting your life. Also that you would have to clean up the mess back there, keep the grass mowed, front and back, and keep the blinds drawn at all times.
    There will be a business opportunity like that of the folks who sweep you office, phone lines and computer for “bugs”. If Google is doing this now just think about what NSA and those other 3 letter agencies have been doing in the past and are doing now. We face a very interesting future.
