    Default Google Earth!

    If you haven't tried this, you are missing out on some real cool fun. High speed internet is a MUST. You can "zoom" on your own house or anything in the world! TOO COOL.

    Just go to google.com and you will see the link on the main page, have fun.

    I had a friend tell me about this a while back. Now I have to resist the temptation to do that all day at work. :)

    It really is cool. Only downside is that high resolution is not available everywhere. That and some of the images are rather old.

    I've been checking out Area 51 this morning. :D

    The original would've been NASA's WorldWind. I go back and forth between the two, and tend to prefer the NASA program.
    Ludicrous gibs!

    I love Google Earth. Has anyone tried to find Polk Audio Corporate on it? Standby...

    Download/save and rename from .zip extension to .kmz :D Does this look familiar to those who have visited the place?

    I recently found a new toy similar to google Earth (actually more similar to google's map service, but cooler). Windows Live. The key is to type in an address (preferably in a CITY, they don't tend to have the closeups for rural areas), and then on the left click BIRD'S EYE. It's a shot from 60 or 25 yards away! YOu can make out what type of cars are in a driveway, it's so close.
    If you will it, dude, it is no dream.

    While I can't see George smoking a lucky strike......you CAN see the white Shark in the drive as well as how freakin' green his grass is (George has about the best grass I've ever seen outside of a resort)

    this engine is run off of keyhole's earthviewer. just loaded google earth onto my computer and it detected a previous version of keyhole's product on my computer. this is schweet.

    the beauty of this version is the fact that it's free as opposed to $100/year.
