Google Earth for Mac OS X
Google today released the highly-anticipated , its simulation software that incorporates satellite imagery, maps, and the company's search functionality that allows users to fly from space directly into their own neighborhoods. "We're happy to finally have some good news for the, ahem, vocal Mac enthusiasts we've been hearing from," one member of the Google Earth Team said. The software supports searches for schools, parks, restaurants, and hotels. Users can get driving directions, save or share searches, and add annotations. Google Earth is available for free, and requires Mac OS X 10.4 or later.
