Google Latitude adds check-in deals

Google took aim at Foursquare on Thursday with the addition of checkin rewards for its Latitude app for Google Maps, while replacing 'mayors' with "gurus" and "VIPs".

Google's location class warfare didn't stop there: there are a poor, middle, and elite class under Google's hierarchy, known as "Regulars," "VIPs," and "Gurus," respectively. Users who check in for the first time might not receive any special designation.

Users will need to update to Google Maps 5.2 via the Android Market, join Latitude, then tap "check in here" from the menu. Google said a version for the iPhone would be coming soon.

The new rewards will be rolled out - where else? - at the South by Southwest Interactive (SXSWi) show in Austin, Texas this weekend, where discounts will be offered at restaurants, bars, and other venues around the downtown area.

The new checkins scheme provides a sort of game-like approach to rewards, with additional checkins propelling users to new social rankings - and new discounts, to boot. "Footprint" icons let users track their progress. As an example, a restaurant could offer a free drink to a regular, free breadsticks to a VIP, and possibly a free dessert to a "guru".

Google began offering checkins on Latitude in February.


Google Latitude now lets you check in to local spots

Posted by Patrick Lambert Categories: Google, GPS, Software

In the crowded world of location apps like Foursquare and Facebook Places, Google Latitude aimed to differentiate itself from the rest of the pack. Unlike the others which center around checking into places by tapping an icon, Latitude always tracked where you were in real-time, without any user interaction needed. Then it would share your whereabouts with your friends as you moved around. Thing is, people like checking in. So Google went ahead and added the ability to check in on Latitude, which will allow more flexibility for users of the app. A more interesting feature in Latitude is you can even choose to be automatically checked into locations, which sounds fairly ridiculous given how close many spots are to each other.


Dell Latitude E6400 XFR

Posted by Sheila Franklin Categories: PC / Laptop

Dell LatitudeDell’s new Latitude E6400 XFR is a second generation, obviously intended to take on Panasonic’s Toughbook. Designed for factories, the military, field technicians and the terminally clumsy, the company says that the 2.2-inch thick laptop can dropped up to 4 ft., not that you would want to intentionally test it. Dell utilizes a “Ballistic Armor Protection System featuring PR-481” which, although is strong enough to be used in missile nose cones, they say is not bulletproof. The system is available in the U.S., Canada, France, Spain, the UK, Germany and Italy with a starting price of $4,299.00.
