When you're not spelling out Objectivist instructions or taking bicycle tours, Google Earth can be a little bit boring. Finally Android users have something new and fun to do: go for a dive. With the release of Google Earth for Android 1.1 (available to Android 2.1 and above devices), you can now zoom in below the surface of the waves and explore the majestic wonder of undersea trenches. The 1.1 release also brings in Flash support, so YouTube videos will play right within the app -- if you're running 2.2 and your device has been granted the appropriate plug-in. The new version is available now, and we have the big honkin' QR code you need right after the break.
