"Desktop Earth is a wallpaper generator for Windows. It runs whenever you're logged on and updates your wallpaper with an accurate representation of the Earth as it would be seen from space at that precise moment."

It's pretty cool but you need to be always online for it to update.

Perhaps we should make a 'desktop Flat Earth' showing the true state of the Earth? :)

Good plan cheesejoff but I'd rather not be killed by covert goverment agencies. It would ruin my day.

It is basically pre-programmed, it's a constant picture of the Earth every day with variable clouds mapped over the top of it.

So it wouldn't be too hard to fake.
