Google Latitude lets you retrace your footsteps

  1. Google is bringing a significant update to the free Latitude application, a location-awareness app available for many mobile devices. The update will allow people to track everywhere they've been, and how long they stayed in each location. Coupled with Google Maps or Google Earth integration, it even lets people "replay" a trip they took.

    Link to Google Latitude would have helped (oops I just read it again, and you do have the link there)
    I found it here: http://www.google.com/latitude
    Looks interesting

    By the way, with the increase on Mobile devices being stolen (usually from cars) why can't users just find out where their device presently is? I may have missed something, on the increase in technology, that somehow you can't find your stolen mobile device

    This is a little creepy. "Big Brother is watching you!"

    I like this concept! It may be a bit creepy, but isn't that expected in our modern day world? Everything is becoming instantaneous, social networking is key. If I owned a phone with a data plan, I would definitely get Google latitude!
