Now google is making so simple to see where your friends are in real time.
It’s called Latitude (your kid may call it her worst nightmare) — and it will enable people with mobile phones and other wireless devices to automatically share their whereabouts with family and friends.
To start out, Google Latitude will work on Research In Motion Ltd.’s Blackberry and devices running on Symbian software or Microsoft Corp.’s Windows Mobile. It will also operate on some T-1 Mobile phones running on Google’s Android software and eventually will work on Apple Inc.’s iPhone and iTouch.
And if you don’t have a cell phone, you can still play Big Brother: There’s a version that can be installed on personal computers as well.
