Everybody knows about the Google Van now, some love it
, some hate it
, but it has become an assumed condition now that, if you're near a street, Google Maps might have your picture (I'm at work!
). Living further off the path might seem like a solution to avoid detection, but Google has stepped off the roadway and into more scenic routes with the Google Tricycle
. Being unpowered and smaller allows Google to get their 360° photographs from vantage points other than the curb in front of your house. Google Street Views won't just include streets anymore: they plan to cover national parks, bicycle paths, college campuses
, theme parks, any any other public place which isn't exactly van-friendly.
