I've heard about Google "spy" vans in cities, but both the pictures used here looked rural. It could of course be near a big city.

I tried Google Maps in a random city, I chose Liverpool UK. The outer parts of the city was not covered. This should not be surprising, and I'm more surprised of the map photos already posted.

They suck in any info where they go, even insecured wifi signals. I know what I'll do when they come into my bathroom. dry.gif

Yeah it turns out they've 'accidently' been stealing all our wireless information when passing with their 'camera' - passwords, everything.

If someone just could shoot out their tyres!


I wonder how many bytes all of Google's hard disks can store. Included YouTube's.

There was a graph on Gizmodo a few months back that estimated they had a million servers located around the world. Do the maths.

EDIT: here: http://gizmodo.com/5517041/googles-insane-...vers-visualized

1,000,000, compared to Facebook's 30,000.

1,000,000, compared to Facebook's 30,000.

Estimated to be more than one million servers. About 2 % of the servers in the world. Google has way too much power, also as hardware customer.

But it said nothing about the storage capacity. How large is the average server? No one of you can answer that, but I ask anyway haha.

Don't lie, you drove into him!

I did have a police car overtake me once, and was going far too fast and had to slam on his brakes for the car in front of me due to a car coming in the other direction, skidding all over the place and was inches off crashing into the car in front of me.

I had a copper do that to me recently too... Even stranger, I was driving home in the dark doing about 100mph (dual carriageway, I ain't trying to look cool, I just wanted to get home) and a car got RIGHT up my arse, we were over taking traffic, so both in the fast lane and he wouldn't back off at all so I just ignored him til I found a spot I was happy to pull into in the slow lane, and it wasn't until I'd pulled back in that I realised it was the Police, the guy really put his foot down when I got out of the way, no sirens, nothing. Obviously his donuts were being ordered and no one had told him.

Was behind a Polish lorry driver in an overtaking lane not long ago doing about 70mph... suddenly he decides he wants to turn left from the overtaking (right) lane. Slammed the brakes on, car starts fishtailing, ended up doing a 360 stopping about a foot away from a steel crash barrier with smoke everywhere. Needed 3 new tyres and a new alloy for that (about 900)... never got his number plate sleep.gif

HAI btw biggrin.gif

I've had close ones like that, never ended up going full circle or even fish tailing though. Just managed to read him and back off quick enough.

OMFG EMBO!!!!!!

Omg, if that happened to me, I would have intercepted him and confiscated his driver license. I'm no cop but I would have apprehended him. angry.gif

Isn't that, like, 70% above the speed limit? What a do-nut.

I don't know, but the way you say it, it sounds to me as you were at fault for that. It sucks, but maybe you were lucky it didn't cost you a new car, or a few arms... wink.gif
