Does it disturb you that if somebody types your address into Google Maps, they can see your house?
Google CEO Eric Schmidt appeared on CNN's Parker Spitzer on Friday, and had a long back and forth about the subject, which included the issue of "Street View cars" that illegally gather emails and passwords while they scan neighborhoods.
During his CNN appearance, Schmidt made a comment that if people don't want photos of their homes snapped, they should "just move." The comment didn't make it into the Broadcast, but Schmidt's comment did not go unheard.
Here's what Schmidt had to say about it:
"As you can see from the unedited interview, my comments were made during a fairly long back and forth on privacy. I clearly misspoke. If you are worried about Street View and want your house removed please contact Google and we will remove it."
Google has commented that they plan to delete all illegal information they've obtained as soon as possible.
As far as houses are concerned, guess we'll see how responsive Google actually is to people who request their houses be deleted from Google Street View.
Do U want your house deleted from Street View? Or are U okay with it there?
