Err...they didn't look the other way. They were willing to do whatever it takes to rescue Goldman Sachs too.
If they didn't rescue Goldman Sachs, who would have given Facebook the billion dollars? Thanks to the prompt response by the Federal government, I may finally get a working Facebook app for my iPhone. So think before you talk!
I happen to have something put up to block your view into my bedroom... are you familiar with the concept of curtains or blinds?
So you are advocating doing away with windows as a concept?
Would I be upset if you used some sort of technology (i.e. the night vision) to help you see more than a reasonable person would expect someone to see?
And what would a reasonable person expect to see in a photo of your bedroom or backyard online?
There's quite a difference between going out of your way to photograph something, or semi-randomly from the middle of a public road.
You mean it is OK to photograph everything, but not OK to photograph something? And what do you mean by "going out of my way"? I just happen to have a night vision camera, so it's no trouble at all.
with no attempt made to shield said location from the public view
Let's say your girlfriend's naked ass showering in your bathroom is visible to my naked eye from a public place (at the end of your driveway, where I parked my cherry picker). I just happen to have brought a pair of Celestron SkyMaster zoom binoculars for no particular reason. Perhaps I am an amateur asstronomer.
Common sense says taking a picture from a publically accessable location is fair game.
You'd be surprised how much of your private life can be glimpsed from a public place. Would you get upset if I used a telephoto lens with night vision to film you shagging in your bedroom and posted it online along with your address? Naturally, I would only be filming you from a publicly accessible location. Or will you now expand your "common sense" point of view to include a limitation on equipment and intent?

It's Switzerland. They do have gnomes, you know.
