Too bad Nokia 3D (ghasp) totally kicks it's ass where available.

Completely agree, at least regarding 3d buildings. Everything else is a 0.

Personally I like Google Earth because it lets me explore the entire world and see real things. I'll probably never get to visit London but with this I was able to go on a walking tour of the city.

3D buildings on the other hand are fake. I don't care or even want them. I guess they are great for navigation but that's not what I'm using it for.

I could not find a change log on their website or blog.Only thing i could find is that on the 3rd the released a bunch of updated imagery
