Is it just me or does it take AGES to load any new areas (ie. go to Google Earth Sightseeing - Top 10 Sites and load one of those. It takes 10 minutes to get all the detail they show). My computer kicks ( AMD 3000+, 512 RAM, 64 MB gfx card, 3 MB/s cable) why is it taking so long?

I like the idea but Google maps loaded 100x faster..

The area at Niagara Falls around the Lewsiton-Queenston bridge is all low res green. Is this perhaps a security reason to hide info related to border crossing?

I've been playing with Google Earth Plus for the last 24 hours and I just love it;

You should get some sleep :)

Thanks to MetricsGuru I was able to download and install GoogleEarth.

When I try and log in I receive an error message (...?answer=20717) suggesting that my firewall or other 'malicious' software is blocking access.

I first added GoogleEarth as an exception to the firewall and finally just switched off the firewall all together - neither helped and I still cannot log in.

Is the problem on my PC or is it down to the fact that the site is temperorily closed? Can others still use GoogleEarth?

Cheers

I'm still playing around with it. I love it. Just wish I had broadband so the images would download quicker (I'm still on 56k due to being in a rural area).

Has anyone got Pro or Pro Plus? Are they any better?

I logged back into Google Earth and not having the problem that some are reporting.

Yes you definitely need to be on broadband, I tried it on a 3/mbps and a 6/mbps connection and the difference was enormous with the 3/mbps connection making me want to give up at times.

But it is an amazing tool, I went to one place I thought was on the East Coast of the US only to find it is actually on the West- duh!

I do have serious concerns though what this could do to search (re my sites/SERPS) in the future though, because it is a lot more fun than using G's regular search.

I still cannot connect. I wonder if it's a first time user thing?

With this release Google upgraded my subscription and gave me another year...free!

Thanks again GOOG

Albeit a rare combination but....

Starting GEarth with WinTV2000 running locks up my WinXP Pro PC. Repeatable - have to hard reset to recover. Could be WinTV, GEarth, problem with conflicting GDI calls, or just my bad luck.

...or maybe it's the phone cops

Wow this is awesome. Just visited the Pyramids in Gizeh, Versailles, the Vesuv, the forbidden City in Beijing and so many other places.

Makes me wanna shutdown my computer pack my things and just travel there myself.

And for the next holidays I'll check before I book if the hotel is really as close to the beach as the catalogue says.
