The Guardian Covers Street View

The Guardian newspaper has an article on Google Street View today. In the article there are hints that Street View will be coming to London,

"it (Google) told the Guardian it will be focusing on "major metropolitan areas" and that it will "leave it to the imagination" whether London will be one of them."

The Guardian rehashes the old privacy concerns in the article. It also claims that Street View costs between $125 and $700 per mile of video footage - which I think is probably an over-estimation.
