Google Latitude

Nothing makes the earth seem so spacious as to have friends at a distance: they make the latitudes and longitudes. –Henry David Thoreau

i guess google got inspired by these words as they launched Google Latitude, a new Google Maps feature for mobile devices as well as a free app for your iGoogle.

you only need to register to view the location of your friends and loved ones who have shared their “latitude” with you. this way, you will now be able to see if your boyfriend’s stuck @ work (or doing obeer-times or is somewhere, hala!)

not only this, your status and profile updates will automatically be reflected via sms, Google Talk and/or Gmail. unfortunately, Latitude is still not open for the IT PINOYs (at least not yet).

concerns such as privacy has been raised however, feel free to check out this vid for ways to protect yourself while enjoying Latitude!
