Google is going to start offering businesses the opportunity to have the interiors of their stores photographed and available on Google Street View. That way a user can...see the inside of a store? WHAT THE -- A COMIC BOOK STORE WITH COMICS INSIDE?! *brain explodes shooting cobwebs like Spiderman*
Business owners are told they must warn their customers and employees about the photoshoot before it begins. Google has promised it will blur out or refuse to publish any images that include bystanders.
The photoshoots will produce 360-degree images using fish-eye and wide-angle lenses as well as stills. Business owners are also invited to upload their own pictures.
*tries Street Viewing every strip club I can think of* Damn, nary an areola. Oooh ooooh -- *Street Views Cinnabon* Mmmm, now that's what I'm talking about. *lathering chest with icing and crushed pecans*
Thanks to Lynn, who agrees they should expand the service to include restaurants' kitchens. Yeah! ...Are those hot wings on the floor?
