Erwin at GoogleGlobe writes in to point out two new features they’ve gone live with. On their main page, you can now type in a city name and have Google Earth fly you there. Interestingly, if multiple cities are found, you get to see them all.
And on www.globeassistant.com, you can now create your “Personal Globe Assistant“, a network link stuffed with different geopositioned info feeds that you get to select. The news ones look very useful, and this is certainly an easy way subscribe to them. Getting a personal globe assistant does require your email, however, as the file is sent to you.
