Happy 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.

How long before the low cost of GPS chips means they get added to every laptop?
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.
