Urbanspoon helps you find places to eat. Using GPS on your smart phone, it will locate restaurants near you by category, price, or only places with Wi-Fi.  How convenient. 😉  Read reviews, see photos of the restaurant, or view the menu.

Urbanspoon is online at www.urbanspoon.com, or available as a free download for your iPhone/iPod, Blackberry, or other smartphone.

Google launched a new service called Google Latitude. You can use your computer on iGoogle’s page, or your smart phone (BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, etc) to locate friends, family, employees, or anyone else that chooses to share their location with you.

Privacy concerns? A bit creepy some might say. However, each person you choose to share with has to accept your invitation. Even after that, at anytime you can turn location sharing on or off:
