Google has unveiled some fetching views of the Vancouver 2010 Winter Olympics sites, courtesy of a snowmobile equipped with Street View's all-seeing eye. The games kick off on Friday, but those of you who prefer to experience snow from the comfort of your PC can enjoy the sights including the snowmobile's sinister shadow caught …
Look up the definition of stalking and sinister. Another El Reg--;
perfect for planning a ski holiday
I hope they do the ski resorts in Europe soon too!

I can just picture it
'Hey man, you what would be like... really cool... if we put Whistler on Streetmap'
'Ya man, that would be SICK'
Paranoia Strikes The Register?
Why the negative and paranoid tone towards Streetmap? I think the service is great.
That last picture...
What do you mean "camera cover" -- that's a screenshot from a new hi-definition version of Descent, isn't it?
You, "sir", are an arse. Rentboys, indeed...
You don't want people to see your house or something? Do you have a big cover over it so the neighbours can't see it? Because if I stand in your street and look, I get the same view as Street View and your precious privacy is worth jack shit.
That's no camera cover....
...it's an eyelid! :-O
This is ACE! I want more!
The little ski-bloke-thing in the bottom right of the screen looks well-smart!
Wot, no pictures of them trucking and helicoptering in all that snow?
I hear that Vancouver's snow hasn't arrived naturally this year.
