Googler goes 3D

More free software from Google. Today Google released free 3-D modeling software called Google SketchUp. It lets you create virtual models of home additions and other objects, with the idea that you can then upload the buildings and objects to Google Earth or share them with others. Is this an attempt to give Google Earth a Second Life by turning it into a virtual world where visitors can create their own buildings, vehicles, and other objects or just roam around?

(The software download is only available for Windows, but a Mac version is promised soon).
