    Sat view is from a few years ago. Streetview of the main street through town about 7/10 of a mile away.

    My house has been there quite some time now. Like many, I’m curious when they drove by.

    The picture shows my Ex-neighbors car parked on the street, and they moved out over 6 moths ago.

    Interesting thought. Time to search some of them out.

    Not sure. I know my house just appeared on Google Earth about a year ago. Living in a small rural town, I doubt it. I try my best to avoid anything related to Google.

    He's worried Google is going to catch him cutting out the crop circles in the field behind the house.:lol:

    No tin foil hat, Google has never done anything to remotely impress me. They're an overrated company, with overrated products and services that they've hypnotized the internet public into think they're somehow better then what's out there already.

    Isn't that in itself an impressive feat?
    Did you once work for Altavista? :nono2:

    You must work for Google then, I take it? Why am I the bad guy here just because I don't bow down to Google? Tell me, what did that company do that was ever so great? Buy Keyhole, and put their name on it? Google is not a web search company, they are not a software company, they are not an internet application company, they are an advertising company when it all comes down to it.

    I found a friend of mine in Tokyo, Japan a couple months ago.

    My house and business are both on there (west coast)

    If you want to see something I consider more impressive than StreetView from Google, check out M$'s Virtual Earth project. the ability to do 2-d and 3-d views with that software is really slick.



    No, I have no interest in M$, in fact one of my least favorite companies, but you have to hand it to them, this is neat, even if they bought the original developer and just carried on from there, its still been a massive effort.

    My house is there on the aerial view but not street view.

    I'd say it's about a year old.

    My skyview was shot in 2004 and is not at their current higher definition. Street View came as close as 9 blocks away, but never made it to my street. In doing checking, there is no street view of any house that I have ever lived in as a kid. At least one of the apartments I lived in during the college days is in street view.

    Being that I live out in the sticks, Google doesn't even have good resolution aerial coverage yet, either.

    Nope, I live too far out from the main town ;)

    I have seen a street view vehicle once though when I was out driving.
