Webscape: Globe trotting and celeb spotting


This week web reviewer Kate Russell brings us Globe Hopping - the high tech version of a long-haul holiday from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. This mash-up uses Google maps to turn your computer into a teleporter to some really amazing places.

Another Google maps tool you can use to track down your favourite celebrity is Just Spotted. Here people post sightings of the rich and famous.

Music lovers can get their groove on with Grooveshark, a free online jukebox that lets you search for and listen to tracks through your web browser or smartphone handset.

For golfing fans, MyCaddie Pro is a free GPS rangefinder with built-in score card, available on the iPhone.

For other smartphone users, FreeCadie is available across multiple platforms. The free version isn't as sophisticated as its iPhone brother, but there is a premium version with some extra bells and whistles.

If you're taking advantage of the January sales, Invisible Hand is where you will find a browser plug-in that will make sure you don't miss any last minute bargains.

And if you haven't bought your 2011 calendar yet why not make your own, featuring photos of your friends & family with free download, Calme.
