Google Maps going off-road
Next, The Daily Mail online reports Google is going off-road. You know the Street View camera cars they use to get images of the front of your home? Now they're going to fit employees with backpacks with the Google Maps Street View camera. This way they can document anything from Mount Everest to the base of the Grand Canyon. "The 40lb backpack holds up a number of 15-megapixel cameras, an on-board hard drive, and enough battery to run for an entire day. Cameras are positioned to give a 360 degree view so every possible angle is captured."

Cat gets off the fridge without jumping
Check out this cat's unique way of getting off the top of the fridge. This video is racking up the views on YouTube. You can see the cat positions itself between the wall and the side of the fridge. It probably feels good on its back too, so who knows, maybe it's not getting off the fridge as much as it is getting a back rub... Watch now: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4VixiGLweY
