Google Maps for Mobile: Latitude Saves Womans Purse

A few months ago Google Maps launched Latitude, and apparently according to a report over at techcrunch, this piece of Google software has helped a San Francisco lady regain her purse which had been stolen by thieves.

Janina Valiente’s Google Maps sporting BlackBerry Bold was in her purse when it was nicked, so Janina called her sister who had permission to see her Latitude position and the info was passed to the cops who were able to track down the crook.

So, just goes to show having Google’s Latitude installed on your smartphone can come in handy in more ways than you’d expect. So if any of our readers have a story like this feel free to share it with us.
