    Agree with both of you Amazing and the potential for abuse is kinda scarey... wonder if Dick Cheney gets an exemption from this one... could be an equalizer for the exempt with the live feed video

    Still competition is a great thing... I think Eric Schmidt just copped one in the googles.

    Here we go folks. . .Welcome to the world of the movie: The Matrix. It has begun, hasn't it. Imagine imagine. . . Great boon to lawyers, I dare say.

    Thanks for the link. That was utterly mind blowing and it's going to be hard to stop thinking about living in the coming technocracy.

    Fascinating video! It got my attention, so I went to Bing maps to see how they cover where I live. They donīt. (Well, they do show the national highway and a very distant city view.) Google maps are not up to date here, but they are very clear. I can see an old aerial photo of my house. With Bing, if you zoom just a bit the image gets way blurry. Canīt see anything. I guess that comes with living at the end of the world.

    Still, thanks for sharing that video link. Itīs amazing the direction technology is taking.
    The only problem with humor is that no one takes it seriously.

    When I go out in the city and see every two minutes someone with a cellphone in his hand I feel very uncomfortable especially when they point it in my direction, the video is not encouraging to feel better about my private live, If I ever want to not be seen when I go shoping.
