The new Google Latitude has just added a feature which allows you to check into specific places.

One key feature that differentiates Google Latitude with other geo-based leaders like Foursquare is that it checks you out of your location upon leaving, so your friends aren't left guessing if you're still there. With the popularity of location-based apps, it's a surprise that Google has taken this long to add the check-in service, but knowing this search engine leader, its online strategy probably has more cool initiatives up its sleeve.
