In Google Voice, you’ll have a Google number. This number is like a normal phone number, except it’s not tied to a phone or a location, it’s tied to you. The main idea is to replace all the numbers you have, like your cellphone number, home and phone numbers, by your Google number. With this, people won’t call your cellphone, your home or your work, they will call you, and you will decide where or in which phone you’ll answer them.

Users of Google’s location-aware mobile software can now track their whereabouts over time and receive alerts when contacts are nearby, thanks to two features added to the software on Tuesday.
The free application, Google Latitude, introduced earlier this year for a variety of cellphones, was originally designed to let friends see each other’s locations and then contact each other via SMS, IM or phone to meet up when they’re in close proximity.
Now, by enabling a new location history feature, users can store, view and manage their own past Latitude locations as well. With Google Location Alerts, meanwhile, they can be notified when friends are nearby, thereby avoiding the need to keep checking Latitude for updated activity.
Both new features were popular feature requests, software engineer Chris Lambert noted in announcing the changes on the Google Mobile blog.
