Exclusive - Google in trouble with the law again
Of course it's not proper news that we've got for you, like an exclusive involving copyright, China or YouTube. It's far more substantial than that, and it's all thanks to avid Bitterwallet reader Sean Atherton who has the eyes of a hawk. Specifically, a hawk capable of using a PC and navigating Google Maps, despite the lack of opposable thumbs.
While mooching about the streets of London, Sean spotted this encounter between Google and the law; two Google cars caught together in the wild, with the Street View of one car showing the driver of the other been approached by traffic wardens, as a police officer eyes them up at the end of the street:
The raised hand of the first warden, the second seemingly speaking into her walkie-talkie - they're taking Google down for their illegal parking (assuming that parking restrictions are applicable in that particular controlled parking zone - we couldn't be arsed to check). You might think you're big, Google, but you ain't bigger than a pair of frumpy, middle-aged traffic wardens with a job to do.
