Google streetview in Penang
While travelling along Green Lane today, I realised suddenly that I was driving behind a Google maps streetview car before it veered off somewhere. For months already, I had learnt that Google Maps was in the process of introducing their Streetview in Malaysia and in fact, possibly about two months ago, I distinctly remember one such car with a similar camera system attached to its rooftop pulling up beside me at the Pitt Street-Chulia Street traffic lights. But I couldn't take a picture then as the traffic lights had turned green. P.S. Despite the car plying the streets in Penang, there is still no word yet on when exactly Streetview will be rolled out.
