http://digitizor.com – We have told you various things about Geo-Location services from time to time. Be it the Geo-Location or location-aware browsing feature in Mozilla Firefox & the Firefox Geo-Location in Maemo, or the Geo-Location enabled Empathy, location-aware features are present in almost every software application that is produced today, simply because location awareness adds to user experience – by providing users more locally relevant content and functionality. Windows 7 is the first ever Windows OS to have  a Windows Sensor and Location platform (Geo-Location in other words) which enables your computer and applications to adapt to their current environment.  The data for all this generally comes from location sensors — including GPS devices, WWAN radios, and even triangulation technology. But, Geosense is a Windows Sensor and makes things simpler by providing the Location and Sensors platform in Windows 7 with accurate and reasonably ubiquitous positioning information without requiring or the assistance of GPS hardware, enabling more practical location-based applications and scenarios on Windows 7. Geosense currently supports Google Location Services (WiFi & IP). More services such as Google Location Services (Cell), Skyhook Wireless (WiFi), Quova (WiFi) & Navizon (WiFi) are soon to be included. You can download Geosense for Windows in 32bit and 64bit versions from the Official Geosense Website.  Geosense has been created by Microsoft enthusiasts – Rafael Rivera & Long Zheng. var wordpress_toolbar_urls = ["http:\/\/www.microsoft.com\/whdc\/device\/sensors\/default.mspx","http:\/\/www.geosenseforwindows.com\/","http:\/\/www.withinwindows.com\/2010\/03\/01\/geosense-the-first-really-really-cool-windows-sensor\/","http:\/\/www.istartedsomething.com\/"];var wordpress_toolbar_url = "http://www.watblog.com/wp-content/plugins/wordpress-toolbar/toolbar.php";var wordpress_toolbar_oinw = "oinw";var wordpress_toolbar_hash = "aHR0cDovL2RpZ2l0aXpvci5jb20vMjAxMC8wMy8wMi9nZW9zZW5zZS1mb3Itd2luZG93cy1hY2N1cmF0ZS1wb3NpdGlvbmluZy1pbmZvcm1hdGlvbi1vZi15b3UteW91ci1wYy88d3B0Yj5HZW9zZW5zZSBGb3IgV2luZG93czogQWNjdXJhdGUgUG9zaXRpb25pbmcgSW5mb3JtYXRpb24gT2YgWW91ICYjMDM4OyBZb3VyIFBDPHdwdGI%2BaHR0cDovL2RpZ2l0aXpvci5jb208d3B0Yj5EaWdpdGl6b3I%3D";Related Posts : How to permanantly disable Geo-Location or location-aware browsing in Mozilla Firefox?
