Do you Google Earth?

Now google earth is pretty pointless, but that doesn't stop it being strangely addictive.

So do YOU Google Earth?

It's not you know - handy for my work coz' it gives you an idea of what a site looks like before you get near it. The new windows version is probably better - it seems to be more up to date.

Re: Do you Google Earth?

I kinda like it. I live hundreds of miles from where I was born so it's good to be able to show my boy where I went to school etc.

On the Gadget Show a few weeks back they gave you the keystrokes to run it like a flight simulator. If you go onto the Five website and click on the Gadget Show it tells you what to do.

Another vote here for it not being pointless. Very handy for looking at the layout of things like prospective holdiay locations.

Re: Do you Google Earth?

Occasionally, it's a wonderful resource if you have a reason to use it.

I was amused to see recently that they've updated my local area and my new drive is on it. Unfortunately, Claudia wasn't on it at the time, bugger!
