Google Street View provokes complaints and concerns

Google Street View will be updated in Australia in the coming months. Because of complaints by some people who were immortalized by Google last time round, face and number plate blurring technology has been upgraded.

Aside from these sort of complaints, there are concerns about another potential form of abuse: Thieves browsing the images for places that look particularly easy to break into.

This is reminiscent of criminal exploitation of the images supplied by Google Earth.
