News about Google Earth
  • Blast off to the moon with Google Earth

    If the 40th anniversary of the moon landing by NASA's Apollo 11 crew has you jonesing for more information about our lunar neighbor, Google Inc. today came out with a new Google Earth feature that promises to provide just that.

  • Google Earth 5

    If you've ever wanted to be Superman--soaring above our globe, diving deep in the ocean, or launching into outer space--Google Earth 5 can grant your wish.

    While Google Earth came out for the iPhone in late October, that was pretty cool. But what's even cooler is the fact that Google has now released an OS X version of a Google Earth browser plugin. That means that now you can get to Google Earth locations right in your browser, without having to fire up another application. And seeing how that other application is Google Earth, which is roughly as slow to launch as molasses carried by sloths through a tar pit, that's a Good Thing.
