Google CEO Eric Schmidt was being interviewed on CNN yesterday and made a quite controversial statement. When asked about the privacy issues of Google's Street View service, Schmidt said, "We drive exactly once. So you could just move, right?"
Google CEO Eric Schmidt created a little buzz when he appeared on CNN's Parker Spitzer talk show. When asked about the creepiness of Google Street View's camera drive-bys, he said, "We drive exactly once. So you could just move, right?"
Though the co-host, Kathleen Parker, laughed nervously, provoking Schmidt to do the same, it's clearly not a joke. I mean, he's not saying everyone should move, but he is saying you can move. But wherever you do move to will still probably be logged by Google Street View, so plugging in your new address will show, yep, your new house.
