Xeric Design has released EarthDesk 3.5, a major upgrade to its popular dynamic desktop map application. EarthDesk replaces your static desktop picture with an animated, real-time rendered image of the Earth, continuously updating in the background while you work. Version 3.5 features Universal Binary support for Intel-based Macs; cloud images are now date-verified to be newer than the previous image; and the cloud server list is now updated weekly. EarthDesk requires Mac OS X 10.3 or later, and sells for US$19.95.
