This is the cyber equivalent of cruising/travel/sightseeing.

I agree in some ways as to what is TRAVEL good for? Wasting time (and money) like one person replied.

I took a gal at work on an impromptu whirlwind tour of Europe one day using Google Earth. She was very impressed and quite entertained.



It is what it is.

No 3d effect for me with this version. The beta going around seemed to work fine though.

Why do you say "for now"? I didn't see anything on that page to indicate that they
were going to support 10.3 in the future.

N-OS X-tasy!, sounds like a cheap date! Did you get her phone number?

I did the same thing with a relative of mine, he too was REALLY impressed... particularly at the level of detail. And it is useful for those of us who want to know where something is in relation to something else-- it's like having a Rand McNally except more interesting and interactive (it does give directions too, remember!).

It says it if you launch the application in 10.3.

I would never have known that since the web page says 10.4 required, I wouldn't have downloaded it. I wonder why they don't mention that little tidbit on their site ...
