Great Googly Moogly . . . skip the GPS?


So, I was checking my Google Analytics account when I figured I’d head to their mobile site (mobile.google.com) and see what’s new. Well, I saw that Google Maps for my phone (Symbian version) was out. I reinstalled it and fired it up to see something pretty remarkable. A wide blue circle was around my location on the map. I didn’t have my GPS enabled . . . they’re locating you by cell towers! So, they can get you within 2000 feet of your current location. Now, that’s pretty cool. I still recommend the GPS Method, but this is very impressive nonetheless.
