    Google Street View coming to South Africa

    Maybe the biggest question about Google Street View coming to South Africa is - Do we really want it?

    I'd never given it a second thought until I read a story in the Sunday Tribune. Seems some citizens don't appreciate it.

    So what do you think:
    Useful tool, interesting diversion, invasion of privacy or reckless security risk?

    I'd love to hear your views.
    The trouble with opportunity is it normally comes dressed up as work.

    Real question is: Who does it benefit? A home owner would have very little use of it, a business might get a bit more use out of it since it's effectively free advertising. Now, Criminals? Considering the increasing organisation of robbery, this would be a useful tool to them. They can map out everything without having to even be around.
    I think that's the scary thing. you won't know until you've been hit.
