Out Of Africa

    Here is a picture of Googles business plan.

    They want to get hold of and take care of the world.

    This is a give away from the Google Geospatial Summit I attended last week. It is a metal magnetised ball, and the surface of the planet is divided into curved jigsaw pieces.

    I can move the cold Canadians who are always complaining about the snow, down near Florida, if they like.

    Just ask.

    Handle with CARE

      Rather than start moving around land masses, just tilt the axis.
      Mind you Australia may then become snowbound. :)

      Nice idea, Jim - the image and the moving of Canada. But please leave Scotland alone. I like it where it is. : )

      Rearrange the globe. That sound like a really fun idea! Certainly would make traveling much easier for someone. :))

      Always complaining about the snow???? Who, me, Jim????? I (and the rest of us cold Canadians) will be able to complain about the heat eventually : ) Absolutely love that metal ball! You turned it into a great image.

      My Hat's Off to You!!
      Very Well Done!!

      Lovely shot Jim, love the world globe!!, it would be nice to adjust things so that we all get different weather, then maybe some of these countries that dont have rain for six months, will get some more often! great photo :)))
