Google Earth's Downside

A disturbing video highlighting the problems with Google's omnipresence these days. Yikes:
Google's cameras are everywhere these days. They photograph us from space, and now even from street level in some cities. This got filmmaker Scott Blaszak musing about how Google's technology could cause big trouble in the wrong hands. Here's his fictional video short Happy Anniversary.

WARNING: Some viewers may find this video disturbing.
Those that do not should have their heads examined. Granted, the actual premise of the video--that Google used satellite imagery in multiple locations from exact dates required by the stalker--is beyond far-fetched. But as with a Michael Moore film, the point is made, if in overly-dramatic fashion. Creepy.
