We all love watching the weather in Britain. I was delighted to find the above program.
Earthdesk was written primarily for Mac, but is also on Windows now.
So what is it? Earthdesk replaces your backdrop in Windows with an updating satellite background of the Earth. It shows the day/night terminator and shadow as well as the cloud cover.
Sounds boring, doesn't it? It's amazingly addictive. The backdrop even has the lights on the cities illuminate as it enters the shadow of night.
The program is a free download and installs easily.
Now, if you haven't bought it, your desktop will look something like this. Luckily, buying this product is simple. The cost is a meagre $19.95 (apprx. £10) Be aware, that vat will be added.
However, the cost of the single license still doesn't break the bank. Once you pay, you will get an email with the license code, which you insert in the relevant box as seen in a previous grab. This turns your desktop into something without the disclaimer. You can also zoom into a particular area as shown.
This is without the cloud cover being highlighted, again, simply adjust to your preference. I like to see the clouds. This really makes the appearance of the picture for me, knowing that this is updated constantly.
