Those of you who are interested in the developer side of Google Earth and Maps may want to check out this YouTube video. It shows Google Developer Day presentations by many key Googlers who work on the Google Earth product. These staffers address development features (APIs, KML v2.2 , KML search, Mapplets, etc.).
And if new Apple products turn you on, note that our own Michael Jones shows off an iPhone in his presentation :-) Those of us in the office wondered how in the world he managed to get a hold of this device. According to Michael, it was simple: "Steve Jobs said yes". Ohhhh, I see.
Once again, Frank Taylor is doing a terrific job on Google Earth Blog describing this event as it pertains to Google Earth.
