Exploring Jerusalem with Street View

As we reported just two day back, that Google Street View is now live in Israel. Google just officially announced that they've launched imagery of Jerusalem, Tel Aviv-Jaffa and Haifa on Street View.

"You can explore the narrow streets of Jerusalem's Old City and each of its four quarters, walk along the Via Dolorosa and see the Church of the Holy Sepulchre, visit the Western Wall and the Mount of Olives," posted Gadi Royz, Product Manager, Google Maps.

Google Earth Day 2012 Animated Doodle

Also, today April 22, Google is celebrating Earth Day 2012 with a animated doodle specially designed for Google Offers customers in honor of Earth Day.

Earth Day only comes once a year, but you can show the planet some love every day, starting with your own backyard.

"Today through Sunday we're running a special Google Offer with online gardening retailer, AmericanMeadows.com: $5 gets you $10 worth of mixed wildflower seeds (more than 50,000 seeds!)," posted Andrew Textor, Sr. Account Manager, Google Offers.

As a bonus you'll also get two veggie or herb seed packs.

"This GMO-free wildflower seed assortment includes twenty-five varieties of brilliant blossoms--like Cosmos, Poppies, and Hollyhocks--with both quick-blooming annuals for a splash of summer color and hardy perennials that'll flower year after year," adds Textor.

Here is the earth day doodle video:

Marissa Mayer tweeted about how the logo was made:
