Google Earth

Google Earth

There's not much I can say about the recently unveiled beta of Google Earth that won't be better said by someone else within the next 48 hours or so. It's amazing (integrated Google search, texture-mapped 3-D topography; 3-D buildings in select cities; public transit maps, driving directions, and business locations grafted on top of a 3-D landscape); people won't be able to shut up about it.

Once again, Google is dragging the planet into the future with simple interface design and services that are universally valuable.
