- DestinSharks’ Virgil Zetterlind is kind enough to host Intel’s demo game, Mars Sucks, on his server. Here is his blog post announcing the link. It’ll be up as long as it isn’t popular:-)
- Time Magazine’s Wilson Rothman likes 3DConnexion’s SpaceNavigator. But he finds it “annoying” that you can’t use it for anything besides Google Earth. A month ago nobody had even thought of navigating desktop applications in 3D, and now Rothman’s main “complaint” is that he can’t. Still, I guess it’s the kind of frustration you want customers to have.
- Remember that bogus website Download-Earth, which misappropriates Richard Treves’ Kokae tutorial screencasts of Google Earth without permission and then tries to get you to click on a paid referral link for Firefox, pretending it’s for Google Earth?
Well now there is another site, Google Earth Tips 360, that has the exact same spiel. Once again, Richard Treves’s screencasts are used without permission, and once again, you are invited to download Google Earth by clicking on a referral link for downloading FireFox.
There are some strange people out there.
- Garmin announces that their Training Centersoftware for their sports GPS devices is ready for the Mac, as promised earlier this year. It’ll be available at the MacWorld Expo Jan 8-12, and then as a download later in the month. The app integrates well with Motionbased.com, which already supports the Mac, and which lets you export KML.
