back to article Moribund Mexican litters Street View

It's a sobering fact, but the further Google's Street View tentacles extend from Mountain View, the greater the chance they will eventually touch someone who doesn't enjoy the benefits of free macrobiotic lunch buffets and Segways.

    Cynics have a point, but...

    Maybe, just maybe, this picture and all the others like it might encourage at least one comparatively rich, Western, computer owning, Streetview voyeur to contribute something to a charity of some sort?

    Hmmm. There is that, I guess. I suppose we still have to acknowledge that we don't really have the full story. And I guess there's something in the argument that it helps make us in well-off countries more aware that everything isn't so shiny everywhere else.

    That said, it'd still be good if Google would let us know what their spy car operator did in this case.

    (By the way, El Reg, I keep finding reason to use your 'meh', 'ambivalent' or 'so-so' icon - or I would, if you had one. Any chance, please? Ta.)
