Latitude Makes the Attitude

I was intrigued by a recent release from the Google Labs. Latitude is the latest creation that links friends to each other by displaying their location on each other’s internet-connected devices. For example if my friend Scott and I decided to share information on Google Latitude’s service I could open my computer, phone, or iPhone and look to see the last place Scott was on a Google map.

Obviously in an early release this is interesting. There is potential for abuse but Google has thought about that as well by implementing privacy settings. The potentials however can be life saving. Connect your children, link the elderly, even link your moving assets like cars or pets to always have  an idea where they are.

Obviously many people have opinions about this. Will you a comment of your opinion below?
