Google Earth Gets NY Times News
New York Times "placemarks" will appear on maps where there's relevant news, and showing the New York Times layer in the software will show a window with a month's worth of headlines, Google's LatLong blog said.
Google spokeswoman Kate Hurowitz said the company is open to partnerships with other media outlets and that extending such a feature to Google Maps--a much more widely used service than the Google Earth software--"would be a logical progression," though the company has nothing to announce right now.
Google's interest in extending this to Google Maps is not only natural, it's a lot more exciting. Naturally if you want to use the new service, you have to make sure you have the latest version of Google Earth, 4.2 beta.
