Over in the magical land of Japan, the tourism board of Hiroshima prefecture has created street view for cats. That's right—a site that offers a cat's-eye look at the city of Onomichi and its restaurants and shops.
The Federal Communications Commission late Friday proposed slapping Google with a $25,000 fine for impeding the commission’s investigation into whether the data it collected from consumers via its Street Views product violated the Communications Act.
Google is doing its best to make good with the people of Japan. After more than a decade in the country, Google is hoping to transform privacy-conscious Japanese Internet users into proponents of one of the world’s biggest names on the Web.
