Earthbrowser — this crazy world keeps goin’ round and round


I was pointed to Earthbrowser by an RSS feed of the newest Apple downloads (the app also has a Windows version). The description:

An innovative earth simulation that combines an easy to navigate 3 dimensional globe with real-time weather conditions and 7 day forecasts for thousands of locations worldwide. Live earthquakes, webcam images, volcanoes and current cloud formations are also featured. A screen saver option lets it take over your desktop with a gorgeous image when you are away from your computer.

I see they have a webcam hooked up in la ciudad de mas macho, Hermosillo, Mexico… where I spent two delightful and very sweaty years. They have positioned the camera on top of the city’s one and only office tower… It appears to be hot and sunny there today — what a shock.

Ah, to be back in the land of tacos, cerveza and mariachi…
