    Mine isn't, but that's hardly surprising considering I don't live in any major city

    EDIT: I'm finding being able to see these streets really creepy btw
    Don't go outside as it's just like Street View, except its in full animated 3D and may cause you to **** your pants!

    Nope, but they have seem to have updated my back garden photo. There's a paddling pool and a gazebo we used 2 years ago in the summer. Great, two year old photo. :p:

    You clearly don't understand the shear volume of data that needs to be collected (and paid for!) for this service that Google provides to you, for free!
    2 year old imagery is pretty good on the scale of things.

    My fiancé's cousin was standing outside her house as the Google van went by - and hence there's a series of very clear photos of her! :p:

    I was clearly joking. I know that it's pretty good going for a small Devon town to actually get a 'recent' photo and as my house's quite far into the countryside, it is impressive. :p:
