Google Maps Goes Deep-Sea Diving to Chart the World's Ocean Floors Get directions to the octopus's garden

Google Maps' Street View service takes the plunge, providing virtual tours of six undersea spots of interest off the coasts of Australia, Hawaii and elsewhere. The footage, collected in concert with the Catlin Seaview Survey, shows lots of fish swimming around. Swim, fish, swim! There's also a Great White attack where a diver loses both his arms, though I probably just made that up. Seriously, the panoramic views are breathtaking—and they can help you find your way to a friend's house, if your friend lives in a coral reef. Look, the way the real-estate market's going, entire neighborhoods will be underwater soon. (VW's already got a car for that!) Sorry for the shark. I mean, snark.
