Google Earth has published the location and an image of Apple CEO Steve Jobs' house in Palo Alto. Google Earth last week introduced a street view feature that lets users get a down-to-earth 360-degree view of the area near a specified location.

However, the new feature may prove controversial, as inhabitants of those streets complain at privacy violations. And one of the residents is the Apple CEO Steve Jobs, according to the Drudge Report.

The story appeared on the Drudge Report on Thursday evening, but has since been removed. It claimed that Jobs' house in Palo Alto is easy to find using Google Earth.
