Google Latitude

So Google Lattidue has launched – a little quietly, but I caught some Radio announcers talking about it today.

**Update – actually, as I write this SBS World News has a full story on it, so a little louder than I first though**

See here and try it out…

Basically allows you to see via Google Maps where your friends are at any given time.

They of course need to be subscribers to the system, and enable you to view their location (easy privacy controls are available).

But still…I can see some instances of contacts (or girlfriends/boyfriends) being caught out with the “I have a headache” and being located at the beach after forgetting to set their privacy settings!

Would you sign up??
