Opt out of Google Maps Street View and get egged
Have you ever known someone to be fanatical in their support of Google? Of course you haven't because you're not a complete tit. However, there are people out in that stupid world of ours who like Google so much that they've started egging people's houses.
Basically, what's happened here is that, in Germany, people have been chucking eggs and posting pro-Google propaganda on the properties of people who have decided to opt out of Google's Street View.
In short, if you want to protect your privacy and have your home blurred out, which is of course fine, you might discover that some dicks have covered your home in albumen.
More irritatingly, these 'protesters' (who have clearly missed the big news this week that World War III could be kicking off any time now) used free-range eggs and posted papers with the incredibly powerful message of “Google's cool”.
Google have said: "We respect people's right to remove their house from Street View and by no means consider this to be acceptable behaviour.”
There's been some fuss around Street View in Germany. Funnily enough, 250,000 Germans have chosen to opt out of the service, including a Munich resident in the same building as Google's German office, which means that the company have had to blur out their own property.
