Address is Approximate

If you enjoyed the Cinemascapes by Aaron Hobson, you may like the direction that Address is Approximate takes.

Shot on a Canon 5D Mk II, Address is Approximate is an endearing (and a tad depressing) short film that was produced, animated, and edited by Tom Jenkins of UK-based production company, The Theory. The stop-motion animation tells the story of a cute toy robot who uses Google Street View to trade the confines of the office for a driving adventure along the Pacific coast of the United States.

Google Street View Cinemascapes by Aaron Hobson

If you didn’t know any better, you’d think photographer Aaron Hobson is an extremely well-travelled individual. A look at his gallery shows some very picturesque photos from Spain, France, Scotland, Brazil, Mexico, and South Africa. These images aren’t his. Hobson is the curator of Cinemascapes GSV, a collection of photos that were actually taken by the cameras atop the “aesthetically-neutered” Google Street View vehicles as plod their way through the world.

Have a look at some of the artistic photos taken by the Google Street View cars after the jump.

Cheating Man Busted on Google Street View

The internet, like a double-edged sword, is, erm, double-edged. It (the Internet not the sword) can be full of porn interesting articles to captivate just about anybody. With so much information seemingly available for free, the Internet can also lead to your humiliation and demise. A British man experienced such a demise when his adulterous ways got uncovered by none other than Google Street View.

The man’s wife was using Street View to snoop on a female friend’s home when she noticed her husband’s Range Rover parked outside another woman’s house. Her husband told her he was away “on business” but she recognized the blinged-out hubcaps on his Rover. The woman is understandably furious and has contacted her divorce lawyers.

Seems like a credible story no? The Sun thought so (and so did Fox News and CNET) but it was all a hoax perpetrated by this man, Idiot Forever. I tip my hat to you, sir.
