Google's Spy Plane

Google and Apple are to use military-grade cameras on planes to take powerful satellite images that could see you sunbathing in your back garden.

Well, not in the UK they won't. We never have the weather for it apart from 3 days a year, when we all head to the park to try and burn.

This is worrying. I like the fact that I could get an all over tan by sunbathing naked in my back yard. I don't want Google checking out my ding-a-ling.

The U.S. technology giants are racing to produce aerial maps so detailed they can show up objects just four inches in size.

Four inches? I can still sunbathe naked then. I don't know what all the fuss is about.

Google admits it has already sent planes over cities while Apple has acquired a firm using spy-in-the-sky technology that has been tested on at least 20 locations, including London. The technology is similar to that used by intelligence agencies in identifying terrorist targets in Afghanistan.

I bet it faired better than the Google Street Car when it tried to do the caves of Tora Bora.

Campaigners say this technology is a step towards a surveillance society. I don't think we need to worry. Google will put ads for things related to what you've mentioned in an email if you use their Gmail, but I doubt they'll serve up ads for Slimmers World if they see you sunbathing.

Nick Pickles, director of Big Brother Watch, said: "You won't be able to sunbathe in your garden without worrying about an Apple or Google plane buzzing overhead taking pictures."

Imagine that. Apple makes you stop being naked. Now, where have I heard of that happening before?
