Let’s face it, we’ve all at some point joked about how Google is God and sees all; well this situation in the Netherlands may just bring some truth to this notion. It would seem as though Google Street View has lead to the arrests of two criminals (pictured).

Last September, in the Dutch town of Groningen, a fourteen year old boy was robbed of 165 Euros ($230) and his cell phone after being dragged off his bicycle by two perpetrators.

After several months, the victim was checking out Google’s Street View in March and saw an image of himself being tailed by two individuals whom he believed to be the criminals.

The victim went back to the police who then had prosecutors approach Google for the original photo (faces of people in Street View are blurred by Google for privacy) and Google (being the benevolent “God” it is) happily obliged. With the original photo in their hands, detectives recognized one of the suspects and proceeded to arrest them.

So next time you plan on robbing someone, or you yourself get robbed, remember both God and Google are watching, and Google is on the Internet.

By the way, Happy Father’s Day!

We all love our iPods for many reasons, so this story may give you just another to love these little media players. Apparently Apple’s clever devices have the ability to deter lightning!

A 14 year old British girl by the name of Sophie Frost, was attempting to take shelter from a thunder storm, when all of a sudden a lightning bolt knocked her unconscious. Note the key use of the word unconscious, meaning she lived; the iPod, being metal and the best conductor, took the brunt of the bolt, saving Sophie’s life.

While I can’t say the iPod was as lucky as the girl, at least she is safe thanks to her Apple product; she is currently being treated for several burns, but is completely fine other than that.

It would seem as though we have all learned a valuable lesson; always keep your iPod with you during a thunderstorm, as it will save your life. Guess you better keep it next to the mirror you carry on hand for deflecting lasers.
