“Locate Me” on the virtual earth


“Locate Me” in Virtual Earth is very cool.

The tool locates your location by checking for known WiFi spots.

It is a system tray component, but looks interesting.

Hmmm…Just tried the Virtual Earth site here and downloaded the Locate Me feature. It couldn’t find me–although it did use the IP address to guess that I’m in Phoenix–which is correct. Makes sense that it couldn’t use the WiFi to locate me. I’m in a neighborood so it’s unlikely that at this time that there are any known access points in the Virual Earth database.

Oh well.

Here are some developer details for Virtual Earth.
