Readers are advised that the Google Street View function — a service of Google Maps — has had issues displaying the street views this past week. The Cardinal first noticed an issue Tuesday, October 5, 2010. The Street View, when embedded in an article, is displayed as an unfocused image that is not completely rendered.
