Xearth...

is a nice little Windows program that puts a globe of the earth or an orthographic map onto the desktop, updates it as often as you like (showing day/night etc in real time), and plots the most recent earthquakes on it, getting data on-line, again as often as you like. The amazing thing about it is that it does all this in less than 200k! Oh, and it's free and isn't adware or spyware.

I think there's also a Linux version, but I've only experience of the Windows implementation.
