30 Mar 11 “Pine”ing away for an Earth plug-in

Oh, I feel such a geospatial yearning for being able to open this link on my Cr-48 and have it work

The link, at least for Windows users, will open Google Maps, yes, but then magically launch a Google Earth plugin that shows some of the great collection of 3D building content that has been posted to the SketchUp 3D Warehouse for Berkeley, California.  In the Cr-48, I see it struggle mightily, and then fail back to the safe place with Maps.
