Hate flying? Google Earth could keep you visiting attractions anyway for the next, oh, rest of your life or so, thanks to 100,000-plus new tours it just added across sites and cities in over 200 countries. That's on top of the 11,000 tours that came with its recent launches on iOS, Android and more recently, the desktop app. The option provides a virtual video flyby of the selected area, adds Wikipedia snippets and concludes with user-provided Panoramio photos of the area. You'll need not lift a finger to get it, as all the tours are automatically available -- provided you're running the current Google Earth 7.0 for desktop or mobile. Check the video after the break to see how to use it.
