" We are like an iPod for Earth images. If people could
get the music out to play on other platforms then the music
companies would not allow Apple access to the music in the
first place. This is the situation"
-- Michael T. Jones, Chief Technologist, Google Earth
Funny. You /can/ get the music out to play on other platforms ;)
Maybe he means that Google Earth is like a Zune. It might work for playing someone else's data (not your data) at this particular moment but depending on market conditions and changes to secret protocols it may not work in the future on the platform you'd like to play it on.
