Google Earth Wallpaper?

I read this article that said there was a button on the Google Earth site that let you download wallpapers. The article states there's a "globe" link at the bottom of the page, however when I load the Earth page I don't see that icon. Does anyone else? Or can I get to the images somewhere else?
