GoogleEarth, now available for Macs

If you're a PC user, you've probably already heard of, and got it (if not, why not?). Some Mac users managed to grab an unofficially released version of it a month or so ago. The good news is, it is now officially available for Macs.

Google Earth puts a planet's worth of imagery and other geographic information right on your desktop. Prepare to waste hours (days if you're on a dial-up account!) finding your house, your place of work (you can tell the photo was taken on a Saturday for my business, the car park is empty!), then your friend's house, then be disappointed because your parents' house in the countryside is just a mush of green (not everywhere has been aerial-photographed at high resolution).
