Google Street View UK

Saturday March 21, 2009

Google Maps‘ Street View has finally arrived in the UK.  Only a handful of cities are currently in the database but (obviously) London is one of them.

Here’s a snap from Street View showing Fudges Cycles where I bought my Dahon D7HG last year.  Click here to view it for yourself.

Google Search Results – All Blocked

Saturday January 31, 2009

Odd!  Google is preventing me visiting any of the search results that it shows me.  Even bbc.co.uk is flag as a ‘harmful’ site – Google statement: This site may harm your computer.

Clicking on the link to the BBC gives you another Google page warning:

Warning – visiting this web site may harm your computer!

Whatever I search for I get the same result.  Very strange.  Has Google been hacked?  What’s going on?

Update@ 1502GMT: Other bloggers are seeing this too.  And judging by my visit count on this post, many others around the world are experiencing the same problem.

Update@ 1517GMT: Yep, now appears to be fixed.  Phew – life can continue!!!!  😀

Update@ 1817GMT: BBC News has reported on the outage.
