Eagle-eyed staff here at Plusnet have spotted one of Google's Streetview spycars mapping out the streets of Sheffield. As reported in The Register, the car has been previously spotted in London, Edinburgh and Cardiff - there can no be no doubt of Google's intention to add the UK into their Google Maps' Streetview.
Anyone not familiar with Streetview might be surprised at how fast and easy it is to use.. and how much detail is shown. Perhaps it won't be too long then before you can cruise up and down past Plusnet Towers from the comfort of your armchair.
Update: Be on the lookout for cars that look like this.
