Google Latitude, available in New Zealand

Have you ever counted the number of times you ask friends "where are you?" in a given day?

Well, Google is aiming to help answer this question before it needs to be asked.

Today , Google launched Google Latitude, a feature in Google Maps for mobile and iGoogle that allows you to share your location with your friends and family. While it won't pinpoint your exact location, it gives you a good idea of where your friends are at a given time.

According to Annie Baxter,Google Public Relation Manger-New Zealand and Australia, It is available in Australia and New Zealand, though the iGoogle gadget aspect of it is available in the US only.
