Romanians Succeed Where Google Street View Failed

bp-street-view.jpg

Plans for Google to photograph Budapest as part of its popular street view program fizzled after the data protection ombudsman raised concerns, which kind of put an end to that, as well as people concerned that their messing around behind their partners’ backs might get exposed. Well, it would appear while everyone was griping about Google, the Romanian company eXtreme Soft Group went about and did the same thing with a Dacia, and produced the (more or less) equivalent at norc.hu, which also features several other Hungarian cities, and amusingly enough, uses Google Maps. Happy hunting for any funny street scenes.

And here is what people were saying back before we forced readers to use Facebook to comment. Weren't those the days?
  1. Robert the Bruce says:

    works with Chrome but not ie8.

  2. Vándorló says:

    @Robert the Bruce: May be due to IE’s lack of HTML5 support. And it looks like they have no intention to keep to their promises to look at this and support it.

    Best bet is to side-step IE (and Microsoft) by downloading Google Chrome Frame inside IE which side steps IE’s crappiness completely.

    Google have created this for their upcoming general release of Google Wave (which is pretty nifty).

    Chrome Frame gives you all of the HTML5 features IE won’t without changing browsers.

  3. Fantron says:

    Before you bitch Microsoft’s Internet Explorer to Kingdom Come, note that this stupid thing does not work particularly well with the Mozilla Firefox and Opera browsers, either.

    It MAY work with Chrome properly… then again, it may not.

    Whereas Google Maps works just fine with just about everything. Oh, and I almost forgot: this Romanian outfit who did the “Dacia Tour of Hungaria” is NOT Google.

  6. Fantron says:

    @one, a.k.a. “david,” kindly write 100 times the following shit:

    “I, one, a.k.a. “david,” am full of shit and do not own this web site and I am full of shit nonetheless.”

    No, shithead, recall you have gotta right this same shit here for us a full 100-times, Shitso!
