OS X Snow Leopard Will Be Location-Aware


Location awareness makes a lot of sense on phones, and now it seems it's shifting to the Mac desktop. According to AppleInsider, developers who've been playing around with early builds of Snow Leopard report that OS X 10.6 includes the same CoreLocation framework that the iPhone used to triangulate your location using surrounding Wi-Fi networks. As Gizmodo points out:

Given that CoreLocation requires no special, costly hardware, I say why not? It's sad that, even from my couch, I close my notebook to use my iPhone whenever I want to look up directions.

Agreed.
