Google Earth for Mac sneaks out...

The Google Blog points at a new radio button on the Google Earth download page.

Yes, it's out for OS X 10.4. No word if it's a universal binary...

Time to get rid of your illicit copy of the beta!

It's awfully pretty, but seems incredibly slow compared to the PC version - even with the cache size turned up.

Cache size doesn't really affect speed that much... But it's really really good to have when your laptop goes offline. :)
I have yet to see it in action on the Mac, but am looking forward to it.

It's not a universal binary.

One down, one (at least!) to go.

Three guesses what version of OS-X my iBook runs... and 10.4 isn't the right ansewer.

Oh well, might just work anyway.
