I’ve blogged many times over the last few years about how a future killer application will be one that combines GPS, mapping and friend finder on your phone.
As the Daily Telegraph reports, Google has launched such a service. It is called Google Latitude. It works for New Zealand, and you can download it onto your blackberry and other phones. Only problem is a download error code 500 at the moment.
There are huge privacy issues around such services. They key is to only let people see your location who you totally trust. But it can be an easy way of meeting up in town etc. I’ll blog more on this once I actually get it installed and working.
