Mini-News Roundup: SpaceNavigator Drawing, New York in 3D

[UPDATED 0900 PT: Microsoft has also released Bird's Eye views for London in Virtual Earth]

A couple of quick things before I leave the hotel for the Where 2.0 conference:

  • Frank Taylor in Google Earth t-shirtSpaceNavigator Drawing - If you give me your business card at Where 2.0 today or tomorrow morning, Google Earth Blog will be drawing one card randomly to give away a free 3DConnexion SpaceNavigator (one card per person please). Here is a photo of what I will look like today - wearing my Google Earth t-shirt. Hopefully there won't be too many other folks wearing the same shirt.

  • New York City in 3D - Microsoft has announced they are releasing New York City for Virtual Earth 3D. A shrewd move announcing this at the start of the Where 2.0 conference where a lot of buzz will likely be generated. Definitely something to check out with a SpaceNavigator - unfortunately I'll have to wait until I get to a box with Windows on it since I've got my Macbook with me for this trip. Virtual Earth still only runs on Windows.

    Virtual Earth 3D only runs on Windows. But Virtual Earth runs in any browser out there. Isn't it?

    Microsoft's Virtual Earth 3D requires a plugin installation - which is currently only available for Windows machines (and browsers).

    And Frank? Is this really all that Microsoft had to unveil for VE? I don't know exactly how to react to that!
