Google Earth

If you have Windows 2000 or later, and a high speed internet connection, and you wanna have a little fun, try Google Earth. If you thought Google Maps was fun to play with, you ain't seen nothin' yet.

Google Maps is sort of built into this, a little bit. You type in an address, and yet get satellite imagery of that location, and you can zoom and pan and everything. This is all done with an external program, not within your browser. Then, you can overlay roads, restaurants, banks, etc.

Although it's really fun to play with, I'm not sure yet how useful it will be. It might be nice when deciding to buy a house or something. And I think cities might have a lot more detail, than the locations I looked. So, depending on the address you type in, it may be more useful than other places.
