Re: Tango Foxtrot Privacy Poof!
Nah, it's all good. If Google can image the inside of my house with this phone, they can offer a virtual tour via google maps, all without having to send a stranger into my property with a 360 degree camera set up. Um...

The problem may simply be that this is very cool technology and if anybody other than Google were running with it, I suspect the reaction all around would be less suspicious.
