http://www.talkandroid.com – You’ve got to admit, the timing of adding a one-of-a-kind feature in Google Maps couldn’t have been timed better after that dismal iOS attempt at a map app. In a partnership with Catlin Seaview Survey, Google has ironically added some eye-popping underwater locations to its “Street View” feature. Google has updated this feature to include underwater locales such as Great Barrier Reef, Hanauma Bay in Hawaii, additional sites in Australia, the Philippines and more. The images themselves were captured with a special, 360-degree camera of which only two exist in the world. (IT news)
