Apply now to be the next Google Maps Trekker

Quote:
We’re working to build the very best map of the world, and we’d love your help to do it. Today we’re kicking off a pilot program that enables third party organizations to borrow the Street View Trekker and contribute imagery to Google Maps. For the first time ever, this program will enable organizations to use our camera equipment to collect 360-degree photos of the places they know best -- helping us make Google Maps more comprehensive and useful for all. This program is part of our ongoing effort to make it possible for anyone to contribute to Google Maps.

Our first partner, the Hawaii Visitors and Convention Bureau (HVCB), has already begun using the Trekker to take photos of the most popular, well-trafficked sites on the Hawaiian islands for future inclusion on Google Maps.

You mean like this? http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/world-europe-11258439


So a according to you Romania should follow France's example and do the same. So where should Romania deport them to, Mayrhofen? Would you accept them in your neighborhood? If you do prove it. Put your money, where your mouth is.

Projecting much? (your own racism)

1st The only racist here is YOU. I've been lurking these forums for years and you persistently denigrate "those people", from the East, as if they are a different species.

2nd And to respond to your full comment, YOU HAVE NO IDEA WHAT YOU ARE TALKING ABOUT when you say this: "all the crap in your country on ethnic minorities". The ONLY THING blamed on gypsies is petty crime, and bad cultural philosophy and behavior, both of which are HARD CORE FACTS. I challenge you to find ANY ROMANIANS that blame politics or the economy on Gypsies. In fact here is the Romanian Politics thread. http://www.skyscrapercity.com/showthread.php?t=1395904 Just use Google translate and I DARE YOU to find ONE EXAMPLE, only one if it exists, where the Romanians are blaming the Gypsies, for the overall poor economy of the country, the way Brits and Americans do. It is a British and American disease of blaming your own failures on minorities, Romanians blame themselves and their government, NOT gypsies, NOT Hungarians, NOT Turks, NOT history, NOT even the Russians, BUT THEMSELVES!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

PLEASE! Go through the Romanian forum with a fine pick and comb and find where the Romanians blame minorities on the economic situation of the country. Do it! I challenge you.

ONCE FOR ALL!!!!! Nobody in these countries blame the gipsies for bad economy, only for CRIME.
There was an incident where some gipsies went to Strasbourg to blame the hungarian goverment for something and what happened??
Within some weeks a lot of them were in prison for ordinary crime. So is the french goverment racist or "oldschool" former communist country or what?!!!!!!!

Wow, the exact same car in the Netherlands costs € 10.000 more. € 27.000 for a Seat Leon with the same specs.

That car cost in Spain 22.400€, same configuration, but could be around 18.000 ~ 20.000€ if the dealer make some discount.

This was a Vorführwagen, a test car, had only 170 km when I did the test drive. A new car with same specs costs around 23,500 if dealer doesn't make discounts.

After a couple hundred km in local roads in Abruzzo I seriously have to have my shocks checked.

Provincial roads in province Chieti are terrible. On a 65 km trip, today, I counted seven landslided road, partially opened as if nothing happened. Some of these slides are decades old, and no-one repaired them yet.

Local roads in province Pescara are slightly better.

With the Audi I had 2 times until now problems with weak accelerating. Some air hoses broke, some other places with leaks. And since 2 weeks again the problem. Replaced a hose that seemed to be bad, no results, will take it to service on Wednesday. I hope I can find the problem and fix it if it's not very expensive and then sell it.

The car is drivable, but with very slow acceleration, and I drove to Regensburg with it today, horrible

About the Leon, I will have to get used to 6 gears, especially because the Audi had the reverse gear in the place where the Leon has the 6.

Audi didn't have the reverse there. That R stands for "rocket".

I heard a joke regarding this "R" from the gear shift.

Short version: a romanian buys a new Mercedes, but the next day he comes back to the dealer with it with the transmission completely damaged. The dealer replaces his car with another new one. This happened for a few times, and after that the dealer asks:
- What the hell do you do with the cars? You always brake them. We didn't have so far any broken Mercedes sold here in years.
Customer replays: Well... I bought a Mercedes, so I went with it on the motorway, on straight road, and started to push the pedal down... 1st gear... 2nd... 3rd... ... ... 6th... 250 km/h... and then I put the gear stick into Rocket (R) mode.
