Torino Olympics via Google Earth

If you have not played with Google Earth, now there is a good reason to do so: to fly to Torino Italy and have a bird's-eye view of the event. Here is Lenovo i.lounge that the athletes in the Olympic Villages see. It contains several Google Earth links. After you install Google Earth, click on them and you will be brought to the locations of interest. You can even see the slopes in 3D where the downhills are going to happen (I am not sure if you can see this with the basic version of Google Earth). It's quite amazing what technology can do these days.
