Love for Google results in egg-throwing, silly notes

Posted by & filed under Oddities.

You can’t grow into a large company without making a few enemies crazy fans. Like the ones who throw eggs at the houses because owners dared to “opt-out” from the Google’s street view in Essen, Germany.
Because a random egging of a house could have been attributed to someone else, unknown vandals also left a note that “google is cool”.
Of course, given that there are more than 240,000 houses blurred, egg-headed supporters of street view will need a large amount of eggs to cover all the properties, and by that time German police will be able to reveal their identities.
Google officially distanced itself from the incident, and that’s understandable — who needs friends like that right after a scandal with indadvertedly captured WiFi data, which also originated in Germany…
