    You can look in my front window in Street View. I make a habit of always being nude with a beer bong in hand just in case the Google vans drive by...

    Seriously and on an interesting note: You'll notice that Street View blurs out Mailbox and house numbers. I'm sure that's an OCR function as i can't imagine them going through the video streams to manually catch house numbers.

    What i find funny is that if the couple had just requested Google to remove the picture and information, it would be "gone" (gone is in quotes because you know it's backed up somewhere someplace just not readily available). Now that they did the lawsuit, the images are all over the place.
