Google on Thursday gave a first public preview of Google Earth. The application lets users fly over satelite images of the world. It has a huge wow-factor, letting you fly over the Grand Canyon or check out that hotel that you are looking to book. On stage at the Google Factory Day at the company's headquarters, Google founder Sergey Brin gave a live demonstration of the technology that will be available in the next weeks.
