Google Latitude API now available for developers

With location based services the latest “next big thing” it’s interesting watching the major and minor players slowly set out their stall to end users and developers. Today it’s the turn of Google, as they announce the public API for their Latitude service.

Read on in the full article.

Hmmm

"The current big names in location services, such as Gowalla and FourSquare, work around the concept of checking in at a location and earning credit for being there while building up a database of your favourite spots alongside a game engine that allows you to earn badges and kudos by checking in to new places or claiming ownership of a location."

Hmm, a game that tracks you and awards points and 'ownership' of a location.. And if you happen to smash some electrical store windows and procure items, that's ok, because it's your home turf! right?.. Just wait till folks start taking this game to the next level to keep their 'high score'. Really seems rather nuts to me.
