Google Earth Upgrade

Google Earth allows exploration of oceans- Newest upgrades to program include 3D images of oceans and Mars

Google Earth 5.0 was unveiled at the California Academy of Sciences in San Francisco, where former Vice President Al Gore, singer Jimmy Buffet, and others spoke about its capacity to educate the public about global warming, ocean acidification, and other threats to the planet.

.........the idea of adding oceans came three years ago when a scientist pointed out that the software was missing the water that covers almost three-quarters of the Earth's surface.

I Need your Help... :-)

I have a tech question that i need help with. :-) I recently was on "Leo Laporte - The Tech Guy" Radio Show I had a question that I needed help with from Leo. And now I am looking for help from you.

I did a little editing (down to about 5 mins) and have saved the mp3 file so you can take a listen at.....

I am looking to hook up my old computer monitor to use as a television. Leo tells me (listen here) that I can hook it up to a cable box. Before I go and rent a cable box, does anyone have a cable box and possibly a HDMI to DVI converter that I could borrow to try it out?

Thanks so much.
See you next week.
