The vanishing: What happened to Google Street View's missing streets

With the arrival of El Capitan on Google Street View last month, you can now haul yourself virtually up one of the most famous rock faces in the world. Navigating certain streets in urban areas, however, can still be a challenge.

As Google expands Street View into ever more exotic places, it appears to have a problem in many of the towns and cities where the service has been available for years. Look closely at any major city, especially the residential areas, and Street View is littered with hundreds, even thousands, of little gaps. And although it’s hard to be sure, the problem may be getting worse.

Can your wearable's sucky battery life be saved? Maybe by streaming to a smartphone

Is there any wearable user who’s not completely happy with his or her battery life? Yes? Aaah! Stop shouting! You’ll be happy to hear that Microsoft Research believes they’ve found a possible solution.

iOS 9 public beta is live: Here's everything you need to know

So far today is shaping up to be software Christmas, with a public beta of OS X El Capitan, as well as a final version of Microsoft Office 2016 for Mac shipping to Office 365 subscribers. Don’t let your iPhone and iPad feel neglected, though—Apple is also launching the public beta of iOS 9.

Now, a beta is a beta. Don’t get swept up in the excitement and forget that this software isn’t final and could have bugs, so you might want to think twice about putting it on your everyday iPhone. That said, developers are on their third beta of iOS 9 and we haven’t heard about any major problems, so if you’re feeling brave, here’s how to get the beta and what you can expect when you do.

Microsoft releases Office 2016 for Mac, but just for Office 365

After years of treating the Mac as an also-ran, Microsoft has changed its tune: Microsoft formally released Office 2016 for the Mac on Thursday morning, even before it released it for Windows. The only catch? If you’re not already an Office 365 subscriber, you’ll be forced to wait until September.

If you do subscribe to Microsoft’s Office 365 subscription service, obtaining the new software should be a snap: just surf to Microsoft’s Office account page and follow the instructions. Students can also check Office.com/student to see if they qualify for a free or discounted copy.
