back to article Google swims with the fishes

Perhaps inspired by the tourists who followed their Satnav and drove into the sea, Google has lugged cameras beneath the waves and added the results to the StreetView service.

      But I still can't find Atlantis. Maybe iOS6 maps has it?

        Stand by for action. Anything can happen in the next half-hour.

        Even if iOS6 has got it Atlantis, it'll be in the wrong location.

        It was a staple of my pre-school TV exposure, but they were the repeats, yes. The first GA production I remember seeing on first broadcast was UFO, when I'd come downstairs in the middle of the night (probably 10pm, but at that age, anything past 8pm was the middle of the night!) It's still my favourite TV show, above and beyond DW even!

          You're all juveniles.

          Four Feather Falls, original transmission.

          Hence the moniker.

          I need the coat - you get cold easily at my age.

    The use of this is?

    So oil barons can find where to next dig? So we can quickly find where to get endangered species?

    Quite cool, but I really cannot see the use of the cost of this one...?

      It's as useful as the streetviews of Scott's cabin in the Antarctic. It's for fun! And long may Google keep at it.

    They are just taking the piss now

    I think this is just willy waggling in Apple's face. "Look at us! You can't even get basic directions and locations correct and we're mapping the underside of the frikkin' sea!"

    And long may Google keep at this, too.

    Poor (?) old Apple

    "Google, however, did so intentionally. ®"

    That was a nasty and uncalled for crack !
