Google Latitude is a location-aware mobile app developed by Google. Latitude allows a mobile phone user to allow certain people on to track their location. Via their own iGoogle accounts, the user's cell phone location is mapped on Google Maps. The user can control the accuracy and details of what each of the other users can see — an exact location can be allowed, or it can be limited to identifying the city only. For privacy, it can also be turned off by the user, or a location can be manually entered. Users has to explicitly opt in to Latitude, and may only see the location of friends ones who have decided to share their location with him/her.[1]

Google's 2005 acquisition, Dodgeball, offered similar facility to users by way of SMS. With Google Latitude, the service has expanded to PCs (it uses IP geolocation as well as user driven input) and automated location detection on mobile phones using Cell-ID, Cellular Positioning, and GPS.

Privacy concerns

Amid concerns over locational privacy,[2] Google announced that Latitude overwrites a user's previous location with the new location data, and does not keep logs of locations provided to the service.[3][4] Nevertheless, Latitude users can opt-in to keeping a history of their locations in Google Latitude.[5]

Compatibility

Google Latitude is compatible with most devices running Android, BlackBerry OS, Windows Mobile, Symbian s60, and the iPhone.[6][7]

Initially Google promised on the Latitude page that it would be available for Java (J2ME) phones, but this claim was later removed from the site.

Both the Sony Ericsson W995, C903 and C510 mobile phones support Google Latitude as part of their built-in Google Maps application. Although this is a J2ME application, it cannot be downloaded for use with other mobile phones.

Lettris

Lettris is a curious tetris-clone game where all the bricks have the same square shape but different content. Each square carries a letter. To make squares disappear and save space for other squares you have to assemble English words (left, right, up, down) from the falling squares.

boggle

Boggle gives you 3 minutes to find as many words (3 letters or more) as you can in a grid of 16 letters. You can also try the grid of 16 letters. Letters must be adjacent and longer words score better. See if you can get into the grid Hall of Fame !
