Freaky cool or just freaky?

Google Maps now does satellite images which is pretty cool (zoom all the way in), and what everyone predicted they would do with the Keyhole software company they bought.

I guess it's time for all of us to have our Streisand moment and wonder when satellite imagery has gotten too good. [via]
