Searching Earth

The people at Google keep themselves quite busy, and the latest project to enter the beta stage is Google Earth (download it here).
As you can see, it integrates your search with satellite images, making for some nifty effects as you zoom and tilt your way into your own local neighborhood.

This is where I live, for instance. That one house somewhere in the middle.

Features work better States-side, with more hits on restaurants and hotels, etc. Big cities will even have 3D buildings streaming to your desktop. Nifty++. Why don’t you try it yourself. (Oh, by the way, I think the satellite images and 3D info are somewhat up to date, as you won’t be able to locate the Twin Towers in New York, I already looked for you).
