Google has just announced the newest update on Google Earth. Introducing Google Earth 6! This version updates the previous version with new twist which includes Integrated Street View. That's right, this is a collaboration of both platforms into one. Hop on to the demo to see how it changes everyone's street life.

Google surprised everyone with Google Earth 6. The latest version is available today for OS X, Windows and Linux, respectively. This update includes the Integrated Street View. This means the Google Maps Street View experience is now fully integrated into Google Earth. Pegman (the little guy that represents your Street View position) is now docked along the Google Earth navigators. He launches Street View just like what he does on Google Maps.

The 3D trees are also present in this upgrade. Prior to this, Google Earth has supported 3D buildings for some time, it is just recently that Google redefined the environment. The add-ons allow those using the walking navigations to take direct paths and not walk on trees.

The presence of the Better Historical Imagery is also another stunning addition to Google Earth 6. It allows the users to look at map views of times like Warsaw in 1935, London in 1945 and Port-au-Prince Haiti before and after the January earthquake. This feature was added in Google Earth 5 but the new upgrade gives it a clearer view of places and objects.

This one is a consummate overhaul for Google Earth. You’re going to love this upgrade. If you’re still not convinced, maybe the demo video after the skip will change your mind:

Apple’s ‘Find My iPhone’ app that allows users to keep track of their iPhones whether lost or misplaced is now offered for free. Prior to this update, the app is limited to MobileMe subscribers. Now if you’re using iOS 4.2, this app is ready for anyone.

‘Find my iPhone’ allows its users to pinpoint their devices on a map in order to recover it. To date, it has been one of the most top billed MobileMe services. BlackBerry, Motorola and Windows Phone 7 each offer free apps to locate missing devices.

There are also other speculations that MobileMe will be free. That’s one of the biggest wish of iPhone users.

‘Find My iPhone app’ is now absolutely available on the App Store.
