    "Google Earth is great!"

    December 16, 2013  |   By weegee2899

    Version: Google Earth 7.1.2.2041

    Pros

    Let's you explore all over the usa and other countries too!

    Cons

    Can be laggy.
    And the pictures can take a while to focus. I think that depends on your graphics card.

    Summary

    Besides the cons Google Earth is great!

    "Extremely annoying CNET display"

    November 16, 2013  |   By keesvanderwal

    Version: Google Earth 7.1.2.2041

    Pros

    None positive to mention about this CNET web page.

    Cons

    On the CNET page I cannot find the button to start the download of the intended program. There is an extremely annoying number of buttons leading to downloads of other nonsense-programs that i do NOT want to download.

    Summary

    Extremely annoying CNET web page.

    "too data-heavy for older computers"

    October 10, 2013  |   By haf canadian

    Version: Google Earth 7.1.1.1888

    Pros

    still useful

    Cons

    my XP computer does not handle the latest version well. street level does not load images completely, and may never fully focus. our Vista laptop, though sluggish loading street images and focusing overheads, still works acceptibly with Google Earth.

    Summary

    vPike.com works better overall than either Bing Maps or Google Earth. However GEarth has more of a fun factor.

    "Where is the Mac Version?"

    October 5, 2013  |   By rfb100

    Version: Google Earth 7.1.2.2019

    Pros

    Can't get it so there are no Pros.

    Cons

    Every Google Earth update that comes along almost always say its for Windows and Mac. Then when you get into the installation, instructions are in Windowsese and a medallion shows up that says Windows. Why say up front that it for both versions but it's not so for Macs? Or am I missing something?

    "Do they pay people to break what used to work?"

    August 31, 2013  |   By batvette

    Version: Google Earth 7.0.3.8542

    Pros

    Pro? I waste much less time using it because it SUCKS.

    Cons

    Con? The waste of time installing it.

    Summary

    I honestly have to wonder if companies like google and ebay have people employed with no better endeavor than work on ways to ruin what were once perfectly good programs so they can keep themselves busy fixing them later. This latest version is a complete mess! Thoroughly unpleasant to use, the navigation buttons either don't work or do things you don't want when they almost do. The graphics are a` joke, with the entire landscape looking like broken glass and when you're in surface view chunks of buildings float in the air like flying turds.
    The whole thing for me, downloading it and trying to stumble through it, was just an annoying waste of time which is bizarre because a couple of years ago it worked great. How did this get through QA? It's like they have a bunch of idiots running the show and just don't care.

    "Best Free Global Map system ever!"

    August 29, 2013  |   By wieloszynski

    Version: Google Earth 7.1.1.1888

    Pros

    Well featured for everything in finding things anywhere on the globe.

    Also melds well with Panormio for uploading and viewing others' imbedded pics on the globe as well as your own.

    Cons

    Large program that will stall under-powered PC's.

    Will not automatically highlight address search bar when cursor is set there, like in most browsers, but not a big deal, simply have to backspace or delete each character.

    Not all areas of the world are in the same definition.

    Summary

    Great program. I use it to locate people that I talk to in Amateur Radio around the world. Both educational and entertaining.
