Latitude in Action

The other day we decided to check out a new (to us) sushi joint/bar called Sushi Creek, which was awesome (get a "Wise Surprise"....oh man). I have digressed, the wife was already working on that end of town and decided she would meet us (the third member of our bike riding team and I) at the restaurant. (Are you ready for the awesomeness because here it comes) Once she got there, she called me to let me know and I whipped out my phone and looked for her on Latitude. Once I found her, I just clicked on her name and hit "Directions". It was awesome! She uses a Blackberry with no GPS so I was very impressed with how accurate her results were. Even better, while she was waiting on us she wanted to know if we were close so she checked her Latitude and saw us in the same spot as her. She was all "WTF" and then turned around and BAM we were standing right there, FRIGGEN AWESOME!

  1. I think you should post on the process of taking that picture:) I'll agree that Latitude is kinda awesome- I'd take away the 'kinda' if I had it on my phone :) Love, 3

  2. As much as my husband + technology really annoys me sometime I have to say that this latitude thing has come in handy although still annoying when I am on the phone with him and ask where he is and get the response, "I don't know - where am I?" annoying. But he has used my location to hurry up and make the bed when he saw my thingy move towards home one day. And I was able to track my mother down when she wasn't answering her phone but I saw she was at a customers location. So, whatever Tenkely - I will give you this one but the jury is still out on the whole friend connect crap.
