GEODE - let locate and locate


Mozilla Labs released a Firefox plug-in last Tuesday 7th oct called Geode

and use it in online services--as long as you grant the software permission
to access the information.

Geode, a preview of technology to arrive in Firefox 3.1, taps into
technology called Loki from Skyhook that deduces a computer's location from
the signals of nearby wireless networks, according to a Mozilla Labs blog
post on Geode.
