Google Sees All, Including Your Cat

Google Map's new Street View feature is quickly raising privacy concerns from people dismayed to find they can zoom right in on their homes, with one woman even spotting her cat sitting in her window. At the present, Street View only has complete street-level images of New York, San Francisco, Denver, Las Vegas and Miami, with more cities to be added. Some dismiss privacy concerns, saying that anything that can be seen from a car on the street cannot be considered private, but others are worried about stalkers and other forms of internet harassment. I just checked my own address and instantly found a panoramic image of my street and my front door. Neat, but also kind of creepy.
