By google map, we can see the map and scenery photograph in the world.
However, it projects the face of the person and the number of the car now.
I think google map is very useful.
But I oppose the service because it is an invasion of privacy.
If my face is projected, I become very unpleasant feelings.
Moreover, I think that “street view”may be used for a crime in the future.
I think that the issue of privacy by google map spreads out gradually from now on.

Privacy? Bah! No more privacy. Everything you do, every where you go, every thing you say, it will be televised. Welcome to the 21st Century. There's no putting this genie back in its bottle.

I remember Jim Carrey and his film The Trueman Show .
