An update to this morning's post: Here's reason enough for Google to do more in terms of explaining why the good so far and away outweighs the bad when it comes to services such as Google Earth: the need to counter headlines of this nature:
Terror Rats Go Google: Sure it's the New York Post, but still ...
Google Earth - a tool for terror: The West Australian.
Attackers using Google Earth maps: Middle East Times.
When you're as big as Google, there is simply no truth to the old adage that any publicity is good publicity.
