Default Google street view. Creepiest thing ever?

Just Google map something and hit street view.

You can't use this view everywhere, but I can see most of Philly with it... Including my house with my car parked outside...

Anyone else find this a little creepy?

Nahh, generally once every year or 2. The most current one of my house has my '87 Fiero SE in the driveway, so that was in Dec '06.
