joshuadugie writes “Slashdot carried a story a while ago that Google had purchased drones for unknown purposes. Google Maps has now added new non-satellite imagery (at UT Austin, for example) when you zoom in close enough. Mystery solved!” I’d like to think that there really are (or were) drones over Austin, but would also like to see Google’s explanation for the close-up images.
