Even Macheads talk LBS now

Macbreak weeklyHappy listening to the Macbreak Weekly podcast today, and was surprised to hear a really good discussion on the potential of LBS, PND’s and the rumour that Apple may be developing a standalone GPS device – unlikely methinks.

Still it was not so long ago that if you used a mac you were geographically challenged and lonely in the geospatial community.

Now… well, I’d say around 50% of the audience of the recent Where 2.0 conference were using MacBooks.

    Good question.. I’m sure this is coming, but I think GeoIP is more practical at the moment, most laptops are used inside where GPS struggles to work well.
