Google Earth

Anybody download this yet? It's pretty cool, high quality zoom ins of places. The images are kind of old though (my area is about 3 years old). Still, damn detailed images of my house and street.

Also kind of freaky that Google is taking high quality satellite photos of us. :-\

My mom mentioned this and all I could think was "that's creepy."

But I might try it out to see what it does.

A friend of mine sent me this but I haven't checked it out, yet.  I think I just moved it to her folder to look at later.  Or, I might have even deleted it.  It's pretty creepy to know we are being watched.  But, if you read enough books it tells in their that there is a sattelite always watching.

I actually downloaded this program at work one day.  It's a pretty cool program, they don't have real awesome satellite imagery for everypart of town, but the parts that are good, are pretty awesome to look at.  And it was already stated some pictures maybe a couple years old, but at anyrate really cool program.  You can like find any kind of restraunts, schools, parks, etc.... its crazy, as well as use it for directions.  Google is going to take over the world......just a matter of time...
