The old new thing location finder software without hardware is now available for free in Windows 7!
I don’t know if this is really new because the technology is already available more than 17 years ago (maybe… joke).
Using the Windows 7 sensor named “Geosense” and Google Maps Client software, you can locate your computers location instantly within 10-15 meters accuracy on some users and 50-200 kilometers in my approximation on other users.
“Geosense is designed to use a hybrid mix of geolocation service providers and geolocation methods to pinpoint the most accurate location information possible - including but not limited to WiFi triangulation, cell tower triangulation and IP lookup.”
Try now! http://WindowsForUs.com?geosense
Overall the software is promising and interesting but i don’t know what’s the reaction of users with regards to privacy.
Great Job Long and Rafael!
