C3 -- rumored to have been bought out by Apple -- has been working on street and even interior views for its technology, reports note. While the company is best known for developing code that automatically generates 3D aerial maps, C3 has also worked on acquiring street views using "an advanced multiple camera system with overlapping viewing angles to capture the entire surroundings in stereo."
An as yet unconfirmed claim has pointed to Apple being the mystery buyer of C3 Technologies. The firm is reportedly still working out of its Swedish office and is informally known as Sputnik, 9to5 heard. CEO Mattias Astrom, CFO Jkell Cederstrand, and lead product manager Ludvig Emgard are all still said to be working, although it's not clear if anyone was let go.

Apple Music in Taiwan, now up to 113 countries
Apple Music has now added its 113th country, Taiwan, to its expanding list of areas where it offers its paid subscription service. The price in the country will start at NT$150 (about $4.50 US) for an individual subscription, and that now includes (as it does in the rest of the world) the formerly free-but-ad-supported iTunes Radio feature, which as in other countries will be customized somewhat to offer channels of locally-popular music styles. Following on the heels of the addition of the service to Turkey, Apple Music is now available in 16 countries and regions -- including China, India, Russia, and Japan -- where Spotify has not yet arrived. http://apple.co/1Q3yI2e
