"Google world".

What's that?

Do you mean Google Earth?

I beg to differ!

I've just been into google earth and looked at the shopping precinct in my area and I can see people!

Remember, looking directly down on to the top of a person is not a large profile. Basically the top of the head and shoulders. Not an easy target to spot.

When I showed Google earth to a freind of mine he wanted to look at his old house, to his surprise we could make out two people on sun loungers in the back garden. They were his parents who both died two years ago! Some of Google earth images are more than 5 years old, anyone in Birmingham will notice that the Bull ring centre is still under construction!
