The Galápagos Islands are already in Google Maps; they are merely adding them to "Street View", as the frickin' article points out in its headline.

"The cameras captured the nesting sites of blue-footed boobies,"


Always show your boobies to Google street cam.

Its ridiculously awesome that my son is going to grow up in a world where you can just instantly pull up a virtual tour of anywhere on the planet.

Do you guys remember National Geographic?  and encyclopedias?

I've become seriously addicted to this. I am now getting at least 4/5 of every game right to ~3-5meters. Russia does not scare me anymore - load website w/ cyrillic keyboard, cut paste word in proper characters into google translate, score a clue. Highest score so far is something like 33000...

What takes the most time for me are the backwater areas in South America.

Until the game this morning where i was put in a little town (west of St. Petersburg russia) where the google data was collected on foot in a relatively small area (there was no way to drive around and get clues). I spent an hour on that one and then gave up. Was off by 200 km. dammit!
cheers
