September 2009 FYI – Google Crashes!

googlecrash.jpg No, I don’t mean that Google’s web site has crashed. Did you ever wonder how Google gets all those Street View photos for their maps? They literarily have crews of drivers that roam the country, taking pictures of everything. Sometimes, they catch very interesting things – such as car accidents! So many accidents, in fact, that could make a top 10 list of confusing Google street view accidents. The funny thing is that these accident pictures will stay on Google’s maps site indefinitely – until Google goes back and takes new pictures!
