Google LatitudeI rarely ever use Google Latitude, although I do use Foursquare, so when Google announces new changes to Google Latitude, I am not always a 100% sure what is new and what is not.

Daniel from Google announced this in the Google Maps Forum the other day, saying Google Latitude users have a new home on their desktop at He said the new features include:

  • Check out the new way to access your friends list, personal location history, and more.
  • Manually update your location from a computer by pressing 'Update' next to your name
  • In Location History, playback your location history from a select range of dates by pressing the play button on the bottom left hand corner of the map

Ha!!!  I click "update" next to my name and the map goes dim while showing the wrong location and no way to correct it.  Google strikes again ... and not in a good way.
