Google Earth

While we're waiting for Microsoft to release the next IE beta, or to announce the certification changes, I wandered over to Google's site and downloaded Google Earth. It's a full earth mapping application and is a bit of fun! I can pretty clearly see my house out in the country, but can't quite make out whether my car was in the car park at the time or if the grass was mowed.

The basic Google Earth package is free (it's in beta, no idea whether it'll stay free at release), with a Google Earth Plus version selling at $US20, and a Google Earth Pro version at $US400. The Plus version enables you to upload GPS information, import spread sheets (e.g. of houses on the market). The Pro version is "leveraged by a variety of industries".
