Yesterday we saw all kinds of HTC One (M8) news floating around the web. Even though we’re all BlackBerry lovers at heart, it’s okay to sneak a look at the latest and greatest in the Android world. While I can’t say that I’ll be running out to pick one up anytime soon, I am a bit jealous of one thing — that Dot View case.

Thanks to a partnership with Catlin Seaview Survey Google now has some beautiful new underwater Street View routes for us to explore in Maps.
The new underwater routes are include a few off the coast of Isla Mujeres and Cancun in Mexico as well as the San Francisco Shoreline and Larvotto Marine Reserve in Monaco. The former location includes the Underwater Museum of Isla Mujere, with sights such as the sunken car pictured above.
Google uses a team of divers equipped with special panoramic cameras to take the beautiful underwater scenes in Maps. The teams take about 3000 to 4000 for each view that covers an area of about 2 kilometers. For now Google isn’t looking to map the entire ocean floor, but the areas it does have are impressive to say the least.
The full list underwater routes that Google added to Google Maps today includes Larvotto Marine Reserve, Monaco; Roche Saint Nicolas; Santa Rosa Wall, Cozumel, Mexico; Sian Ka’an, Mexico UNESCO World Heritage Site; Columbia Deep, Cozumel; Whale Sharks at Isla Contoy, Mexico; The Underwater Museum of Isla Mujeres, Mexico; and the San Francisco Shoreline.
What’s your favorite Google Maps underwater scene?
Portland, Oregon – Founded in 2008 to provide top quality mobile applications, Fling Soft today is thrilled to announce the availability of Socialblend for the iPhone and iPod touch. Socialblend provides a single unified view into all of your social media services including Facebook, Instagram, Twitter, and Youtube.
Socialblend is a free application for the iPhone and iPod touch that was built out of a need felt by its own development team, friends, and family. “I found myself waking up everyday and opening 3 to 4 different apps to interact with my connection’s photos and then I realized I wasn’t the only one”, says Mike Dewey, Fling Soft’s Head of Creative. “We started concepting and realized that unifying these services led to this very visual discovery of media you might have otherwise missed. Its simplicity is really what makes the concept so powerful.”
Socialblend allows you to connect your social services and then displays your media from these services in a single simple timeline view. You can tap to enlarge a photo and pinch to zoom or if its a video simply tap the play button to start watching. Within the timeline you can double tap to like photos and videos and touching the Like or Comment icons will allow you to read additional comments or post your own comment. These actions are then posted directly back to those services without any additional steps. Also, using an icon in the top left you can call a slide-out where you can selectively choose which services you would like to see, allowing you to fully customize the timeline.
Socialblend is also rapidly adding new services. “We are already working on additional filtering features and on the services side we will quickly be adding Flickr, Vimeo, and more” says Jay Mantri, Fling Soft’s Head of Business. “Our goal is to allow users to interact with as much of their social world as possible from a single location, we have almost 20 different services in our roadmap”.
More than just being a simple seamless user experience, Socialblend is really a unified social media platform built on multiple levels of API integration with all the various services in market. “We feel we have developed a foundation for unifying users’ social media and we can only grow it from here”, says Jeremy Krall, Fling Soft’s Head of Technology. “This first iteration has many of the everyday features user’s expect such as Liking and Commenting, but we are already beginning to create layers that will allow even greater unification and powerful interactive filters for various services.”
To celebrate the launch of Socialblend, the team is giving away an iPad Mini to one lucky user! Simply visit us online and then download the app, follow us on Twitter and Facebook, and sign up for our newsletter. In 30 days, we will select a lucky winner to receive a free iPad Mini!
Socialblend allows you to manage all of your social media from a single unified timeline. Users can like and comment directly on their media just like they do currently and it posts directly back to the corresponding service. Simply connect the services you would like to use and Socialblend does the rest.

If you use the default Calendars app on your Mac running OS X Mountain Lion, mini calendars are back. Apple took them away for a period of time, which was irritating since mini calendars always were able to show me things at a quick glance without having to manually click through months.
If you’ve never used mini calendars before or don’t know how to view them, follow along and we’ll show you how.
- Launch the Calendars app on your Mac.
- In the bottom left you’ll see a month preview calendar. This is a mini calendar. To expand that view, position your cursor directly above the date and you’ll get an anchor.
- Drag upwards to expand the view to more months. I like the two month view but you can drag further up if you’d like to show even more months to jump to.
While mini calendars aren’t a hidden feature or a knockout one, they do make it easier to quickly jump to things. I find them extremely useful when I’m nearing the end of the month and I need to see what I have planned for the following week. I no longer have to toggle between months in calendar view in order to do that. I’m glad Apple brought them back after their brief disappearance.
