Google offers peek into Bhutan with Street View launch

Google product communications manager Stephanie Shih demonstrates a Google Street View image on a tablet computing device in downtown Thimphu on October 23, 2014.

If I’ve seen you taking photos with a tablet computer, I’ve probably made fun of you (though maybe not to your face, depending on how big you are). I’m old school: I much prefer looking through the viewfinder of my full-bodied, single-lens reflex camera, even though it has a large LCD screen.
