1. You want that $100.00 in your pocket or an Amazon Fire TV don't you? Well here's the deal. With our new updated look we are in desperate need of an updated logo. The 'old' one has certainly served us well, but it's time. Find all the details here: bit.ly/1q0k6Wa

    Google Latitude inside of Google Maps?

    No it only updates when you use Google Maps.

    It updates more often than that, because often when i'll sign into igoogle home, it will tell me where i am via latitude on my homepage and will give me the status like 10 minutes ago. Often times i will not have used google maps since the previous day.

    That being said, if you have gps disabled, then it does the triangulation thing via cell tower info. I have not noticed a battery difference with latitude on or off.

    That may be due to the fact that the phone determines our locations for google searches and other things.
