A New Version Of Google Earth? Sweet!

It looks as if Google has launched a new version of Google Earth! Check out the video below.

(Google LatLong) What good would fancy new navigation controls be if there wasn't something new to look at? While we're regularly adding new user-created SketchUp buildings submitted through 3D Warehouse, we decided to take things up a notch for this release by including photo-realistic models for dozens of new cities. Take a spin around Tokyo, Munich, or Boston to get a taste. We've also significantly enhanced our approach to rendering 3D data to greatly improve performance and realism.

I'll have to play around with this later on (as I have too many things to do right now, blog wise).

Sporting Blogger On My Head

Hmm...on second thought, I look like some type of "Geek Thug."

Kosher Keyboard Plus Hebrew Equals Happy Darnell

After about a week of waiting, my Hebrew/English keyboard has finally arrived.

Update: looks as if the iPhone "chops" half of your message when sending it to Blogger.

Anyways, like I was saying, this will help me finish up some "must do" homework tonight, not to mention help me with my class tomorrow.

Video: LG Vu Phone (iPhone Killer?)

It looks like there is another "iPhone clone," this time by LG (note: to my knowledge LG was the first that came out with the touch screen, but Apple popularized it).

Sprint (via Samsung) released a similar version earlier, although it may need a few more months of development as the phone was crashing in front of the tech press.

LG seems to be more of a finished product, although ironically it seems to be exclusive to AT&T (just like the iPhone). Verizon and Sprint must be hating that. :-)

My Ugly Mug...

Here is just an image of me goofing off at church. One of my friends
took the image via the iPhone.

Sprint Releases iPhone Killer?

Finally, a phone to take on the iPhone! (although I am still in love with mine).

Its called the Samsung Instinct, and from the video below it sure does look fairly interesting.

Its from Sprint, and they are promoting this phone on (hat tip: CrunchGear).

They are releasing it this June, which should help them compete against AT&T. It only holds 2GB of memory, although hopefully they will be offering more (as I am approaching 2GB on my iPhone).

My only advice to Sprint is to make sure there are a lot of "third party apps" to go along with this phone, otherwise they will only be able to retain people on their own network at best (as the iPhone is already gone over 1,300 apps).
