Tag Archives: MAC address

Google Street View car drove down my street today

This was a lucky shot – lucky that I had gotten a glance “of something” going down my street and on a hutch, sprinted for my camera, ran back, saw what it was, and got this shot.

This is the second time I have captured their car on my camera. The other time, I was bicycling on an off road bike trail and encountered the Google bike taking pictures.

The Google vehicle scarfs up photos, laser measurements to create a 3D world model, Wi-Fi access points and MAC addresses, and in the past, also stored any private email you might have been sending over Wi-Fi as they drove past. Now I need to change my router ID and create a new fake MAC address for it.

File this under “Cameras” because, well, it is!
