Google Street View Takes A Camera On A Journey Through The Philippines

Here in the States, we largely take Street View for granted. Sure, Google hasn't sent cameras down our large web of rural roads, but it has covered the bulk of our cities and large towns.

These days, the search giant is making its way to other parts of the globe. Not too long ago it took pictures you can only find deep in the Amazon or in a kayak around Malaysia. Now it's showing off the footage it got from carrying a camera through the many streets and diverse environments of the Philippines.

This means you can pick up Google's little orange avatar guy and drop him onto the many roads of Manila, the country's capital.

There's the useful AIDE which lets you develop Android apps on an Android phone, and then there are some Android Wear apps trying to pretend that microscopic watch screen is enough to do things we usually use 5-inch+ displays for. Like Gmail or web browsers or YouTube. And now they're back with another app that spells out what it does in its name: Messages for Android Wear.

The app works with both SMS and Hangouts accounts, displaying your list of conversations and the last few messages from each one, and letting you reply by pecking on a keyboard.

Snapchat 9.15 Lets You Buy Additional Replays, Apply Snazzy New Animated Lenses To Your Selfies, And More

Each instant messaging platform of sorts offers its own appeal. Snapchat's appears to be the ability to share moments of spontaneity that won't linger around for the rest of your life.

CBS Releases An Android TV App For 'All Access' Subscribers

It seems awfully strange that services like Hulu and the various TV apps require you to pay or log in to access content, especially when that content originally aired for free on terrestrial television. They broadcast the shows with ads in the first place, and they're making money on the ads embedded in the streaming video too, so why put up any barrier to entry and lower your potential revenue? CBS, the self-styled "Most-Watched Network in America," takes this one step further with a full, Netflix-style paid service just for its shows. It's called CBS All Access, and it costs $5.99 a month.
