how kiwi's see the world

You may already know about it, but you can not go on to googles webiste http://maps.google.com/ and look all over the world from a satellite. You can even zoom up on your own home!!!
There really aren't a lot of search engines that beat google. Did you kow that they have a whole range of books online as well. Its a great way to find specific ideas or words in the text. If you got to www.google.co.nz and click on Google.com, then click More / Books and read away. It beats the library catalogue because you can search inside the books.
