Google Latitude. Now for iPhone

I’ve had it installed on a Nokia N96 for a while. And, to be honest, I haven’t found it that interesting or useful. It might be both useful and interesting if I used it while at a conference or some other large multi-day event. But, on a local level? Not so much. I’m also concerned about the constant use of the battery draining GPS radio or WiFi (when used for location triangulation). However, that may not be a problem on the iPhone since it does not support multitasking. So, the iPhone’s GPS is not used if you switch away from the browser.

You can try Google Latitude out for yourself by pointing your iPhone’s Safari browser at:
