Google Maps Has Been Rickrolled
Google Maps has been rickrolled by Google. This week Google released indoor Street View imagery of their Data Center in Lenoir, NC and one Google employee decided to rickroll the Street View camera by making sure Rick Astley videos were playing on his computer monitors as the imagery was captured.
Bletchley Park, the home of the UK's main codebreakers during WWII, is now on Street View. The Street View trike has managed to penetrate where thousands of German spies couldn't and enabled Google Maps to show Street View from all around the Bletchley Park estate.
This is where British cryptanalysts and mathematicians, such as Alan Turing, famously broke the German Enigma code.
Hat-tip: Street View Funny
Postcards from Above is a nice collection of Google Maps satellite images that have been processed to resemble vintage postcards
