So, before a company of the same name started making your e-readers, the Amazon was a river. And now, thanks to Google, you can take a boat ride down that body of water, without having to deal with all of those scary river monsters. In celebration of World Forest Day, Google has added a tour of the Amazon to the Street View functionality of Maps. Interested parties can travel down the river and hike along trails with 360 degree panoramic views, courtesy of some 50,000 photos nabbed with help from the Street View trike.

Kid Icarus: Uprising flies too close to the 3DS, gets bundled with a stand

Thursday, January 12th, 2012

D’ya know what’d make up for a nineteen-year wait? Well, Project Sora thinks the answer is a plastic peripheral. Yes the long, long awaited Kid Icarus: Uprising looks like it’ll be bundled with an official “Nintendo 3DS Stand,” according to a tweet by the game’s maker. It’s no doubt a practical addition, as those analog-plus-touchscreen controls look like they’d make your arms tired — which is probably what got Icarus in trouble in the first place. No word on price for the goods at this time or even if it’ll travel across the pacific, but we’re keeping our primary feathers crossed.

Ask Engadget: best AirPlay speakers for travel?

Saturday, October 22nd, 2011

We know you’ve got questions, and if you’re brave enough to ask the world for answers, here’s the outlet to do so. This week’s Ask Engadget inquiry is coming to us from Christian, who seems to be into the idea of traveling sans wires. If you’re looking to send in an inquiry of your own, drop us a line at ask [at] engadget [dawt] com.

“I am looking for some AirPlay-enabled speakers that I can use to travel with. They should support 110 to 240 volt and have WiFi built-in so I don’t have to carry around an AP. Also, it would be cool if this WiFi could connect to the hotel network, if possible. Thanks!”

It’d also be cool if you share any relevant advice down in comments below. Cheers!
