PC World Names Google Earth Best Software of the Year

PCWorld Awards Google Earth Best Product of 2006PC World has just released it’s 100 Best Products of the Year. The first software product listed (in position number six) is Google Earth. Interestingly, Windows Live Local is listed number 39, Yahoo Maps is listed number 56. But, Google Maps doesn’t even make it on the list – which just doesn’t seem right. PC World describes Google Earth as a “Satellite Mapping Service”. Not the best description, but I’m glad to see Google Earth get even more accolades.
