Google Vandals Terrorizing Homes in Germany

Print comment Post Comments
Avoiding Google's unblinking eye could be as simple as a mouse click or as extensive as a written report. In September, privacy-conscious Germans found it to be relatively easy to avoid the Street View cameras from Google Maps -- as Lisa Caccioppoli reported. With a simple registration, over 250,000 Germans successfully blurred their homes from Street View's roving camera lens.

What they didn't count on were Google terrorists targeting the residences.

According to BBC News, certain West German homes that registered to be blurred were pelted with eggs and -- get this -- had "Google's Cool" notices pinned to their doors. I mean, I've spoken with pro-Android, anti-iPhone folks, but I've never heard of something like this.

A Google spokesperson claims the company wasn't involved with the incident. "We respect people's right to remove their house from Street View and by no means consider this to be acceptable behavior."

It's true. A company as methodical as Google would've definitely chosen a local cuisine as ammunition. In this case, most likely a strudel of sorts.
POSITION:  No positions in stocks mentioned.
