Google Ramps Up Mobile Search With My Location
Google on Thursday announced that it has used its Gears Geolocation API to make searching for businesses and locales in your area easier on Windows Mobile devices. According to the company, Search with My Location approximates your location based on Cell ID technology already employed by Google Maps and returns businesses in that area. If you're looking to find the best Italian restaurants in your area, you can input "Italian restaurants" into the Search field, and it will return a list of Italian restaurants around your location. But it goes beyond businesses and restaurants. Google said that if you want to know the forecast where you are, simply type in "weather" and it will return the weather for your area.
