You can now have your own personal time machine with the Google Street View
It has been a good seven years since Google first launched its Maps and over this extensive time period, tons of image and location data has been gathered by the Google application. But all this data has only appeared to us in its most recent form and that is soon going to get changed. The world famous search engine has recently made an announcement in which they stated that they have decided to open up all information. This means that we can go back and see how much each of its locations have adapted during that period.
Google has also disclosed its plans to roll out the latest features across its desktop Maps service and this is going to take a start from today; a new clock icon to Street View images will be added. Once this feature has been clicked, you can move around the slider and select your choice of the thumbnails which represent different locations in a particular space. The data recollection which you will witness will be the most interesting which you would have ever come across. You would likely see skyscrapers go up, houses come down, and maybe even witness the rebuilding efforts of a community affected by a natural disaster. Till now we have no idea if this feature will ever make its way beyond the desktop.
The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
