The latest post at Google's Code blog demonstrates what Google calls "touchEarth", Google Earth on a multi-touch table.

Hmmm... wonder how that works on iPhone?

That'd go great on my multi-touch table in about ten years time when these things become common place. Sadly, until then I'm stuck with my trusty QWERTY keyboard and mouse for Google Earth.

True about the table but, what do you think about iPhone's touch screen?
