iPhone can now utilize Google Latitude
posted by PhoneArena Team / Jul 29, 2009, 6:34 AM
To make use of Google Latitude, you need to have an iPhone with software 3.0 or newer and open google.com/latitude in Safari Mobile. At this time, the function is available to customers in USA, UK, Canada, Australia and New Zealand.

"That´s why the function is available via the phone browser and not through Google Maps. According to Apple representatives, so as people don´t get confused." Don't get confused? Are you kidding me? How could you get confused unless your a moron? Damn, I joke with my friends that Apple is dumbing down the world one iPhone user at a time, but I didn't think there was that much truth to it. It took me 1 second to figure out that Lattitude was inside the options menu of Google Maps on my N95 without anybody telling me how to do it. The best part is, after you spend that 1 second going through the options menu to find it, you never have to go looking for it again since you know where it is now! But according to Apple, that's too confusing for an iPhone user. God forbid if someone had to use their brain for half a second to figure something out on the iPhone! Why doesn't Apple stop beating around the bush and just say what it's really implying: You're not smart enough to take one second to figure out where Lattitude would be in the Google Maps app like everybody else on S60, WinMo, and Blackberry's, so we found another way to do it that we think makes so much more sense to an iPhone user, but in reality is more of a pain in the ass and doesn't make much sense at all.
