Google Latitude

Can Google’s new location history dashboard make Latitude useful?

Google may not be at the front of the current geolocation charge, but that doesn’t mean the search giant isn’t interested in taing over. This week Google announced a new feature that it hopes will make users more comfortable sharing their location with Google.

The Google Location History Dashboard gives Latitude users a snapshot of where they’ve been. That data may just provide some utility for users (and get people more comfortable using Google’s location service).
