Sky Goes Android – the Google Earth Sky application, which started out as an inside-out version of Google Earth to view the night sky, was first ported to Google Maps over a year ago. Now, Google has ported the app and data over to the Android mobile platform. Using position sensing and built-in compass feature of Android phones, the Android version of Sky can tell which part of the sky you’re pointing at and show the sky map for that area. Sounds cool! I hope to see one next week when I go to California for Where 2.0.
Greece Halts Street View – I’ve had several reports the past few months from excited folks in Greece seeing Google cars shooting Street View. Now their government has decided to halt Street View shooting until they decide whether it is a good thing for their citizens (wow, those guys must be really powerful to stop Google! *snicker*). via Cnet
