    This is a series of iconic (some less than others) album covers superimposed over the actual locations they were shot at in Google Street View. I have not visited any of those places. Of course, I'm still saving up for my album cover tour of the world. So far I've got a gran... / Continue →

    Because what good is Google Street View if we can't use it to explore places we've always dreamed of traveling but never will because life is just all work and then death, the folks at Google took a walking and diving tour of the Galapagos Islands so we can all take a virtual t... / Continue →

    This is a shot from a Google Street View car (links to actual Google map) traveling the New Jersey Turnpike that happened to capture a space shuttle flyover in April 2012. Seeing it sent me on a Google Street View treasure hunt to see what other oddities I could spot in the sk... / Continue →

    Some peen-loving jokester (God, aren't we all?) in Victoria, Australia managed to draw a really crappy looking wiener on one of the camera lenses of a Google Street View car. As far as wieners go, it's not a very good one. On a scale from 1 to 10 it's like a 2 (is that...supp... / Continue →

    This is a sad video of two guys racing across the country from San Francisco to New York entirely in Google Street View (presumably because neither has a license). How long does it take? Try 90 hours and 104,000 clicks. Thank God they sped up the video, amirite?! I'm not, I... / Continue →

    Back in 2008, Pittsburghers Aaron and Christine Boring (*yawn*) began the process of suing Google for invasion of privacy after a Google Street View car trespassed 1,000 feet up their private drive (marked 'NO TRESPASSING') to take pictures. Finally, a settlement has been reac... / Continue →

    Looks perfectly normal to me. It was funny because Geekologie Reader Chris sent me a link to the actual Street View (HERE, currently unavailable) last week, but the image was already blurred so I had no clue what I was looking at. Then I stumble across this picture today and... / Continue →
