Thanks Google...Spouses Beware!l

Yikes! I am sure that my wife will love this app on my phone! Google announced yesterday the release of their new "Google Latitude" application. This will allow users to see where their friends are on a map, in real time! Scary,

Google confirms the application is strictly voluntary and you have to accept your friends and family members requests to be added to the list.

I guess this will be a good tool for parents of teenage children. Even better for spouses....No more lies like "yes honey, I just left the pub...I will be home soon"! Your partner will be able to tell your exact location with GPS Pinpoint accuracy. ( Suspicious wives/husbands will love this!)

By the way Google is expanding into the "Big Brother" realm, I am sure they will soon release a Toilet "waste analyser" application, which will monitor what foods you are eating so they can customize the Google Ads to your individual food tastes.

  1. Big Google Brother is watching, eh? I wonder if it works in Canada too.

    Off-topic: Just realized I never replied to your email. Very sorry about that, but things have been quite wild and hectic at my end for the last little while.

    Anyway, glad to see your blog is up and running -- looking good!

    I have also added your blog to my blogroll.
