I may be late to the game here, but I just discovered Google Earth this week. Boy is it cool. I daresay it’s the coolest thing that ever came out of the internet.
It’s cooler than email and instant messaging.
It’s cooler than shopping in your underwear.
It is a travelers dream.
Anyway, go out to earth.google.com and download the free version. It only works on Windows now, but they say they are working on a version for Mac. You need high speed internet access to use it properly, so don’t try it on dial up.
Boy is it cool.
