Geolocation

less than 1 minute read

Quite obssessed with geolocation stuffs lately. I was so impressed when I saw Firefox successfully located me while I was connected with my home wifi. I didn’t understand how it did it. Since I’d never registered my wifi before. I did some research and finally figured out the basic mechanism.

It’s funny. And I’ve added so many wifi access points to Skyhook’s database, including the one in Starbucks, my home and those of my neighbours.

And I started to use Foursquare. Such user-update model is cool. It only works in an open society. Anyway, I’ve added many cafes, Chinese restaurants to foursquare.
