I wonder if in the future, it will all be real-time.

Stalkers will then be able to relax in the comfort of their own home!

I have actually used this to double check addresses of my customers, usually if I'm writing a big list of addresses & I see something wrong, I can just zoom up to their house with Google Earth & check.

A lot of these "pictures" seem to have been taken many years ago, which has benefited me.

I learned that many of my customers houses were for sale previously, which probably makes them the new home owners (something I would have never known)

I also saw that some of my customers had lawn damage, & that the landscaping I see now when I visit them, wasn't previously there when I check Google Earth. Which could mean they are willing to spend $$$$.

I was lucky enough to see who they had hired last time to do their lawn maintenance work, the company's workers were in the picture raking.

It's pretty sneaky but I love it.

I was actually able to find my mother driving down a couple of streets.

LOL
