  1. Google has introduced Google Earth 6, adding a number of significant upgrades and improvements. Most importantly, Street View has been more deeply integrated into Google Earth and users can now fly from space to the street wherever Google has Street View imagery. To do so, pick up the little Pegman icon docked right alongside the navigation controls and drop him wherever you see a highlighted blue road.

    :) i assume this have some Paralel computing, because that randering made by your CPU while catchin data from the web, they should leave that to the GPU instead, if it is that way It would be faster to load... My thinkin.. :)
