I'm Sure You've Already Heard About This, But...

I'm sure you've all heard all about Google Maps new zoom feature that brings thing down to street level. And people are already finding all sorts of fun stuff with it. Boing Boing, as usual, is all over it, with great debate, odd images, one of the vehicles behind it, and a new word: screwgled. They also ask if people's opinion would be different if this were a government group doing this? And there's one EFF attorney who always seems to be spotted on these things.

The Google Operating System also dives into the privacy issues surrounding this.

In some other random Google news from the Google Operating System blog (can you tell I'm trying to clear links out here?), you can use Google Maps to find directions that avoid Interstate highways. You can also restrict Google Image searches to strict categories like faces.

And, lastly, if you ever plan on going to Disney World, have this Google Map bookmarked on your laptop.
