Spying on Google


A Gizomodo reader took this photo of a fleet of cars in the Google parking lot. Apparently there are at least 30 brand-new Chevy Cobalt cars here, most without license plates yet.

As you can see each of the cars has a metal mounting on its roof which looks like a vertical extension for mounting Google's Streetview 360° camera. We can therefore assume that Google is preparing to invade the towns of America.

This is great news for those of us who love 'streetview spotting' (and if that includes you then you should add the gadget in the left-hand column to your iGoogle page).

So be warned America Google is coming.
