    I wonder how many Google map vehicles are driving around the world mapping everything? I've seen one or two drive by, but they must number in the thousands if not the tens of thousands. How do you get a job driving a Google map vehicle? What does it pay? Who gets to do the cool sites like downtown Paris and who is stuck doing the plains of North Dakota?

    Someone (*cough cough - TECHSPOT - cough cough*) should do an article on what's involved in putting together the ground view of Google Maps. ;)
     
  5. No accounting for taste hey. I prefer North Dakota to a big city any day.
     
  6. Japan should be putting the money the world donated to fixing the infrastructure and not spending upwards of 50 million of it on security for the whale hunting expedition. Very poor show Japan :(
