its just fun to be able to explore the world on your phone.
It would be interesting if it had a layer for one of those "where are my friends" type apps. I could picture some weird game of tag where everyone is running around where a huge black pillow case so they only can see/navigate with their droid.
So technically, there is a use for students who have the Droid and Google Earth if they have a project or presentation to show the class that requires the use of those.
I think it's cool. It's like a Globe but one in which you can zoom and zoom and zoom in on.
I found my house and where I grew up - it's neat.
I think it's neat, but it sure is taking up a lot of internal ram. I've temporarily uninstalled it until they come out with a way to install apps to the sd card.

Yeah thats what it seems like to me. Just maps with satelite view and some other layers turned on. But you can change your angle of view so that it sorta looks like you are flying (navigator does this though).
Other than that I agree, I don't see what makes it much different than maps.
Its maps wrapped around a manipulatable ball.
