Google must never have predicted that the Earth could be so mis-used!

"...the captured suspect said he and the other attackers were told to memorize Google Earth maps of Mumbai's streets so they could find their targets"

Technology sometimes can be quite a mouthful. Google may never have anticipated the misuse of Google Earth to such an extent! The terrorists who rained terror on Mumbai on Nov 26th made..well..the most horrifying use of Google Earth, which per-se is an innovation which should make Google proud.

All this makes one think about the consequences of mis-using technology. Whether its as simple as using a mapping tool like Google Earth or the massive energy generated by fusion and fission in nuclear weapons - man is the only species who can invent something to mis-use it to the maximum!
