I am lovin' this program. Anyone else got it? Have you put any of the plugins on yet? ( I got flickr, keyhole and a bunch of 3d models from google earth hacks) It's fun to see the world from afar. I can see the Burning Man Festival in Nevada, then skip over to the Great Pyramid... love it!
It's a Google program that lets you zoom in places from above, using aerial photography. There is a free version and pay version that provides GPS support. I've just used it a bit, however it is pretty slick. You can download it from the Google site.
