1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Google Earth for Android has been updated to version 1.1, which allows users to explore the oceans in great detail. Now, you are able to zoom in underneath the surface and explore the terrain that makes up nearly 70 percent of our Earth.
    Included in the 1.1 update:

    • A layer called "Explore the Oceans," which features hundreds of photos and videos submitted by users
    • The gold highlighted icons represent those submitted by the Mission Blue Hope Spot Initiative
    There are also features only for those with 2.2 (Froyo):

    • Supports Flash in balloons, which means that you can watch videos directly in the balloons
    • Also, the application was made easier to navigate, with Google allowing users to roam around with two fingers rather than the on-screen controls
    This update will work with most devices with 2.1 (Eclair) or higher. If you want to download it, links are after the break. [Google Mobile Blog Spot]
