Too Much Information

The geniuses at Google have come up with a new "service" called Google lattitude  which allows you to map your friends' real-time  locations from their cell phones. Are we the only ones who find all of this kinda creepy?

Time was, a player had to worry about getting her spot blown up because of three-way calling. Or, maybe sending a love note to the wrong email address. And we won't even get into the many love games and dilemmas that arise on Facebook. Now, the geniuses at Google have come up with a new "service" called Google lattitude  which allows you to map your friends actual locations from their cell phones. For parents trying to keep track of hormonal teenagers, they might be on to something.  For everyone else, this service just sounds creepy. Hat tip to BlackWeb 2.0.
