Google Earth 6.2 ditches the Gaps and Adds Sharing
Google goes seamless
The image quality in Google Earth used to be bad. If you want to look at a place you had to view a bunch of stacked up rectangular photos to see what you are looking for. It was irritating in that some of the pics were darker and some had clouds since you never knew when the satellite passed over the area.
Google Earth version 6.2 launched today and Google has some fancy new tech that takes all those individual pics we used to see and mashed them together into into a seamless globe. No more gaps and the images are balanced out for darkness and clouds too.
You can also now share your place using Google+ so others can see where you have been or where you want to go. Only Google+ is supported right now for sharing. You can also get directions for walking and biking right on the Google Earth maps.

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.
The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
