What is your point?

Haven't had enough fresh air lately?

What does it have to do with WinGuard?

It is a humorous spoof that's all.

When you enter an address you will see a picture of that place. 
There's a little map with a little man on it - you can move the little man
up and down the block if you need to. 
I just looked at my home!

For me this came up across the street but since I'm familiar with Google Map,
it took very little effort to tun it around and here is the result:

Little confused Bob...doesn't google do this anyway? What advantages does it have over google...

(And I'm pretty sure it is just for the US...where google is more global - I can look at my house if I want...)

just a tip: if you see anything on the pic that can identify you or your friends, like a car plate number not blurred, you can email them and they'll change that. Also, be aware that those views will be regularly updated.
 There was a funny story about that: a man whose face wasn't blurred coming out of a sex shop, and his wife saw it or something  ;D

Most of eastern EU is not covered. So it's not really all of EU. (EU is European Union right?... because in french EU is Etats Unis or United States which are covered almost completely)
