Latest version of Google Earth was released yesterday, and it has introduced some new features. First thing that we need to mention is the integration with Google Street View. Now for the first time you can simply drag the Pegman into the streets and you’ll be immediately taken to the Street View.
As an outdoor person, we were most delighted to be given a chance to try out this new USB GPS travel logger by i-gotU. For those not familiar with what a GPS logger actually does, by attaching this tiny gadget to a backpack or just pocket it after turning it on, we will then be able to add GPS to keep a record or show others when and where we have been to together with details like the exact longtitude and latitude, speed, altitude, etc. To make sharing the details mentioned above even more easier, i-gotU comes with an extremely easy to use “@trip PC” (linked to www.a-trip.com account) software which functions as a data import client quickly allowing you to manage,geotag and share your recent trips onto blogs as well as photosharing sites such as Flickr and Picasa.

The new Google Earth 5.0 has been out for about a week or so now, but for those who have never tried to use it may still not be convinced why you should download it (for free firstly!), try it and have a play with it. The new and updated Google Earth is probably the biggest library of knowledge (and fun) any free software has ever been able to offer. Yes, indeed there is now a Google Earth Pro that costs 400 bucks, but that is hardly necessary considering the amount of information and fun factor you can already get from the free version.
Google Earth 5’s biggest new features include the other final frontier, the 20th century, and the Red Planet: Mars. You can now go back in time, look at shipwrecks, and even track tagged marine animals, I don’t think this has been something that any other free software has been able to offer.
