Google Earth for OS X Being Developed: AppleInsider

Mac rumour site AppleInsider claims that a long-hoped-for OS X version of Google Earth is under development: “Earlier this month, a pre-release version of Google Earth for Mac OS X that uses OpenGL rendering reportedly began making the rounds overseas. The 40MB application packs a hefty set of preferences, allowing users to tweak detail and color, and control the speed of their ‘flights.’”

No indication or guess as to release date, but there are screenshots.

Those of you unfamiliar with Mac rumour sites should be aware that a rumour site reporting something does not necessarily make it true. Even so, Google did promise a Mac version; it’s just a matter of when. (Taps feet impatiently.)
