On Friday, software giant Google released version of its popular Google Earth program. The new version, a 45 megabyte download, adds the following fixes and changes:

– The “Enable Controller” option is now default on. If you have an uncalibrated external controller (such as a gaming joystick) connected to your computer, this could result in the Earth spinning with arrows displaying to signify movement. As a workaround, we suggest the following:

– Turning off “Enable Controller” in the “Navigation” tab of Options/Preferences

– Unplugging your external controller, or

– Recalibrating your external controller.

Google Earth requires an Intel-based Mac running Mac OS X 10.6 or later to install and run.

If you’ve tried the new version and have any feedback to offer, let us know in the comments.
