Desktop Earth

Written by Shaibanii Pressed on October 10th, 2008 - 3:10 pm Filled Under: Discovery

Desktop Earth, something I recently discovered. It’s an application that shows you the Earth from space. How awesome?! :-D You may think “f***! This is gonna slow my computer down” and… you’re wrong. It doesn’t, or at least for me. There are options that you can choose to exclude from your desktop, such as clouds and lighting etc.

You may be really excited about it, but realistically it gets boring, and has a few bugs. The day after I installed it, I got weird text on the screen and had to restart my computer a couple of times before it went away. I think it’s caused from the cloud updates

It would’ve been better if it had zooming options, the ability to rotate (if its an active desktop item), in summary — more interaction. I tried it on my Vista laptop, didn’t work. It worked fine on XP. Definitely not Ubuntu (Wine). Add those features, and it become a must-have app. :-) And maybe, I’ll use it, but for now, the normal everyday wallpaper will do. :-D

Bye-bye, and hello FileShaker! How awesome? 10GB! Enough said. The files are kept forever on their servers as long as they’re being downloaded. :-D

Finally a good and simple file host.
