Google Street View Problems

Google Photos Stir a Debate Over Privacy: Google’s new Street View is making some people nervous.

Ms. Kalin-Casey, who manages an apartment building here with her husband, John Casey, was a bit shaken when she tried a new feature in Google’s map service called Street View. She typed in her address and the screen showed a street-level view of her building. As she zoomed in, she could see Monty, her cat, sitting on a perch in the living room window of her second-floor apartment.

What’s Street View, you say? It’s pretty cool.
