Bye-bye, privacy

This morning I went on Google Maps and discovered, completely at random, that they've very quietly enabled Street View for Edinburgh, and indeed quite a few other spots in the UK and some other countries. Only a day behind the reveal!

Why is this "good-bye, privacy"? As I see it, it is functionally, for you, no different than if someone took a photo of your street or your workplace and posted it to Flickr (and you're not in the photos anyway), the difference here being that if anything, it will stand out far less as it is now just part of the large city of Edinburgh.
