Google Maps Captured Murder Scene?

Google Maps, the worlds’ eye that can see everything from naked people to pranks to gruesome murder scenes. Yes! it witnessed a somewhat and image of a gruesome murder scene that was captured way back 2009.

Users of Google Maps have been speculating for quite a while now ever since the captured photo of a murder scene with 2 people dragging a bloody body leaving a trail to a jetty. It looks like they are trying to dump a body in the water.

The place is in Alemere in Amsterdam, Netherlands. The image had over 1,200 comments posted by a Redditor and people seem to be taking it seriously upon seeing it.

But what appears to be a murder scene in the image is playing with our eyes. Reports are coming in and suggested that it is just a dog that took a swim in the river and when it walked in the jetty towards its owner, the water in the wood seem to look like blood trails.

It seemed to be making sense because even dumb criminals wouldn’t do that in the broad daylight especially when there are people around. And yes, there are people around the scene showed in a zoomed out image in the same place.

One of the comments in the image said “Also there appears to be someone on a bike crossing the bridge and someone with a dog riding a bike just exiting the bridge. Those photos show that whatever is going on was in clear view of anyone across the lake or crossing that bridge.”

That makes more sense now.

According to Systrom, he was not really affected on the issue that Twitter will be adding up photo filters to its service. It is known that Systrom has previously sold his photo-sharing site to Facebook. Instagram, according to Systrom, is said to owe some of its accomplishments to letting people change the appearance of their photos through the use of filters.

In addition to this, he emphasized that he is not expecting an Instagram version for video services anytime soon. He stated that it takes a long time for videos to be edited and are difficult to configure.

But, Systrom is making sure that his company is working on procedures on how users can navigate and look for relevany and important photos in a quicker way.

On the other hand, David Karp had discussed regarding the reason behind his service not providing a mechanism for commenting on Tumblr sites. According to Karp’s words, the lack of comments on the site was made intentional in order to avoid nasty comments from unknown people.

As a result, the company came up with what they have called “fan mail.” In this way, a person can send a response to an author in Tumblr, along with an electronic postcard that the comment-maker designed.

Samsung Galaxy Note

Samsung Galaxy Note will be Available in T-Mobile?

The Samsung Galaxy Note – a confusing device that others find it as a tablet and some says it’s a smartphone – is presently limited to the wireless carrier AT&T, but there are reports running across the internet that the confusing device is extending to a competitor wireless carrier T-Mobile.

The very first hint stems from a Wi-Fi certification that appeared for the Samsung unit with model no . SGH-T879.
As for company standards, all Samsung products carried by T-Mobile uses the model formula SGH-Txx9.

This specific model is additionally detailed with a 800 x 1280 screen resolution, which suggests an orientation of a smartphone and not a tablet like the Galaxy Tab from Samsung. If so, the Samsung Galaxy Note is the only smartphone having that screen resolution.

The news were then followed with a couple of screenshots allegedly taken from a device with model formula  SGH-T870.

More importantly, the photos show that the product’s body number was similar to the Galaxy Note of AT&T.

Having its stunning screen size, the Galaxy Note is undoubtedly a beautiful device. However, its unusual size still creates a confusion to many as to whether to look at it as a smartphone or a tablet.
