Streets is Watchin

Google Maps brings it right to your hood.

Just in case you were getting tired of checking out your ex’s block via satellite, the Google team has rolled out their new, almost alarming Street View function. If you live in a major metropolis like NYC, the up-close and in your business feature works right this minute. Street View allows you to drag and drop a small yellow character anywhere along the Google map. Upon placement, a new window pops open with a 360 degree view of the street, its traffic pattern, as well as if it’s a one-way or not.

While undeniably cool to play with and potentially useful to drivers and delivery boys, paranoid types better watch out- the streets have eyes… and they’re Googling you!
