Sky News brought this to my attention as they zoomed in on the road in front of the studios. Note Google number plate recognition software fail!

  • The funny thing was I was working in Sky News (the building next to me in the photo) and they were doing a story about online date protection. They open google maps to zoom in on the studio and there was my car! Coincidentally you can see in the photo that google have not obscured my number plate which added weight to their story! It seems that googles number plate recognition software doesn't work with the black and silver plates on classic cars. I messaged them but just got an automated reply, their computer couldn't see a problem with the image. Not that it matters, there are photos of Pedro all over the internet without the number obscured, we're not exactly low profile!

  • wOwww, thats just stunning! Bet you're one of the very rare people to see your own car on GM. As yours is SO recognisable, and many people know who you are, sooner or later indeed someone would point it out. Funny!
