Google Mobile gets local with iPhone 3.0

Sponsored link
Mobile Safari joins Android and BlackBerry browsers in getting location awareness with Google, using GPS or Wi-Fi triangulation to figure out what food, stores, or other goodies are nearby when you search.

As with its counterparts, the location setting sticks with the browser until you hit update, or it happens to notice you’ve moved locales. Google says it doesn’t pull location data unless you allow it at the prompt—two prompts on an iPod touch, actually—and the location feature can be disabled from the Preferences link at the main Google page.

Has location-aware searching ever helped you find a place to go while you’re on the go, or is it just more data collected without reason? Tell us your take on geo-aware Google in the comments. Some people are raising privacy concerns about exactly what kind of data Google stores using this function, and its cause for alarm for some.
