RELEASE: Microsoft Location Finder for Virtual Earth

Now this is cool.  It’s called the Microsoft Location Finder… think GPS, without a GPS device.

Microsoft Location Finder is a client-side application that turns a regular WiFi enabled laptop, Tablet or PC into a location determining device without the addition of any separate hardware. When launched by a user Microsoft Location Finder uses WiFi access points – or reverse IP lookup when WiFi is not available – to center and display the person’s location on an MSN Virtual Earth map enabling the user to quickly and easily search in their present location.
