No street view in my rural-ass area.

Just about every street?

Ok fair enough. Time to start on the roads, the places, the avenues, the boulevards, and the ways.

I'm sitting on my front porch waving at the car.

Google had to plead with citizens in Billings, MT to stop flipping them off... or dressing like superheroes and staging fights... or letting the air out of their vehicles' tires... or having people drive around following them with (I shiat you not) "Google Street View Boosters Club" magnetic signs stuck to their cars in magic marker.

Yeah, we could have been nicer. I guess.

Nicer, but less awesome.  There's always a tradeoff.

If I were at my CSI lab I'd zoom in and enhance the reflection of the car and do an angle algorithm to get its license plate number.

Just looked up my address, and I'm in my yard looking at the Google car as it passes by.

Why would they care if you were "dressing like superheroes and staging fights", and how do you use magic markers to stick magnetic signs to your car? You'd think the magnets would do that themselves.

You don't remember seeing the Google car?

I saw the Big car a few weeks ago.  They still don't have my area up on their "streetside" view.

Bing sucks.

Same here.

Probably a good thing in my case.  Whenever they do finally roll through, I'll probably be sitting on the front porch in my underwear, enjoying a cigarette.

Just last week, my three year old was in the front yard wearing a batman mask and cape while he was watering a tree with a water sprinkler. It was a hilarious sight. Five minutes after he went inside, the google car drove past. We were that close to having a totally awesome presence on street view, but instead you will just see our boring house.

I do actually, I just forgot about it entirely until this thread.

gfid: Bing sucks.


At least they pay you for using their search engine. :p

Neither my street or the road leading up to my street is on Google Earf. I've noticed that a street in Northbrook, IL, has all the surrounding streets on Streetview, but not that one. Curious.
