Last night I found Google Streetview (on Google Maps) for Australia. Really interesting and fun. Australia- prettiest country in the world!

ohh i can see my street and my house yippee, when was it taken?
from the various xmas decorations i've seen from around sydney, probably mid nov to end of dec.

street view is really impressive. but its usefulness seems pretty limited.

yeah question. how can it be a breach of privacy, if oyu could walk down the street and see the same stuff, if not more?. i mean you can see into the back yards or anything. just look at normal view and you can see on people properties and everything. street view only allows you to wonder the streets not peak over fences and everything.. thats my view but i dont watch the news or read the paper or anything to find out how this was addressed .. LOL
