If you dig through the code of iPhoto’s app bundle, you’ll find something rather new and telling: references to Google Maps, and a hidden “show” button.

This means Apple is probably planning on a new tool for iPhoto that can take the GPS info from your photos exif data and auto-link it to Google Maps, perhaps even browsable from within iPhoto itself.

That in-and-of itself is interesting but not really important. What is raising eyebrows is that that it’s possible proof of the rumored goings-on between Apple and Google, two companies with similar roots and corporate culture, as well as disdain for Microsoft. And similar fonts.
