Some L.A. located iPhones think they live in Boulder, Colorado
The GPS malfunction has been a topic of conversation at some Mac Forums. One user named OK3wire wrote, "For about the past week now, my standard 3GS map app has been erroneously showing me as being located in Boulder, CO" even though he has never left L.A. He asks, "Why is this happening?" And that is a great question. A spokesman for AT&T puts the blame on Apple. The Cupertino based manufacturer did not respond to an email and phone call. Ironically, Boulder is one of the cities being considered by Google for a 1GB per second fiber optic Internet pipeline. Thursday was the beginning of Boulder Fiber Week which is the city's effort to influence Google to build the network in Boulder instead of other places under consideration like Duluth, Minnesota and Topeka, Kansas.
While online Forums are suggesting ways to fix the GPS problem, none of the solutions are working. A member named SpaceKitty writes that, "This is because there is no difference between Boulder, Colo. and California." For those with confused Apple touchscreen devices, we would suggest making a call to your nearest Apple dealer, For those in California, that would not be the location closest to Norm's Plumbing.
