Muno Foofa of PC Advisor is one of the first residents of the United Kingdom to want Google Street View in the country. However, he/she (what kind of a name is Muno?) heavily criticizes Google for the long wait. Some quotes from his/her post:
Google Street View sounds like fun.
But, depsite the sightings of Google cars driving around in the UK there are precisely no Google street views of our little island. Google Street View was launched in May 2007. It's nearly 2009. Wasn't the web meant to be super quick at information delivery? Ditto, Google?
There are 17 locations in bloody Australia (their phrase, not mine), for Pete's sake. Japan gets a few, as well.But none in Blighty. Is Google too busy smudging British people's faces? After all, we have a lot more people than Australia.
