  • Google street view

    Google has put my city (Coventry) in street view. I think the radio said about 20 cities in the UK were now on street view. It's very odd to see my house from the front on the internet!!! But it looks like I was probably out at the time as my car is not there - so it must have been a weekend!

      Ours isn't on street view yet, but the house where I grew up, my mum's current house and my Oma's house are all visible (they're all in Oz)....

            Ours is there too.
            Don't know about anywhere else but ours was definitely taken last summer and it was a weekday as my son remembers the van going past as he was going back to school with friends, at lunchtime and he looked it up on google last night and they're on it.

              Mines been on there for at least 2 years that I know of. What happens if they 'catch' you sunbathing naked, can you sue them for a privacy breach I wonder - not that I do you understand! There would be an eclipse of the sun if I got my buns out, lol.

                      I stand corrected, this is not the view I can see when I google my address! More of an ariel view, but still quite detailed. My God, I hope I'm not in the frame when it comes to our street...
