image for Google deny privacy concerns
New Google Bedroom View

After the amazement of Google Street View has died down, the tech-heads at the multinational super-organisation are already working on their next project, but deny that there will be any impact on privacy.

With the world's streets already mapped, hand held versions of the cameras will be visiting all the places that the car-cameras could not go, such as parks, forests, people's back gardens and inside people's houses.

Google is already in trouble for 'accidentally' sampling unencrypted Wi-Fi as their cars trundled round the streets of the world, claiming that they didn't use the data collected, hadn't intended to collect it and besides, it was unencrypted so it's the fault of the people who didn't use any encryption on their Wi-Fi, all very valid points.

Some Industry Privacy experts feel that Google are using the furore of this privacy issue to push ahead with the mapping of all the areas previously unmapped.

"I wouldn't want them in my house!" claimed Peter Phile. "I've got nothing to hide, but that's not the point. They might have muddy shoes. They can keep out of my back garden too!"

"If people don't want us to record for posterity their wonderful decorating," said Wayne Google, CEO of the corporation, "then that's fine. We absolutely will not come back when they're away and break in through the small window we've observed already with our cars. And anyway, as long as we didn't intend to break in, don't take the TV and the people left the bathroom window open, what's the problem?"
