Is a Mac Version of Google Earth Coming Soon?

Hours after MS Launched their Live Local service with the cool bird's eye imagery, stories are surfacing about the possible release (no date was listed) of Google Earth for Mac OS X. I'm sure Mac heads, often overlooked by Google, will be thrilled. Thanks to Dirson for this news tip. I can't test (not a Mac guy) but I wonder if this pre-release version of Google Earth for Mac OS X is a version that began appearing overseas earlier this month according to AppleInsider.com. This is the program that we believe is listed on Dirson's Spanish language blog and available here. Caveat emptor with the software, of course, but a trusted Mac head friend, (a Mac mensch) just downloaded it and told me it loaded without a problem and works without any problems. If we learn more about an official release, We will post.
