“Living the Vida Local”

by Matt Ball on January 20, 2009

The cover story of the February issue of Wired magazine is, “Inside the GPS Revolution.” The story talks about the hidden worlds that “location-aware” phones deliver, and profiles 10 applications that they found to be the coolest. The list includes Google Earth for the iPhone, and an application to help you drive faster by avoiding speed traps.

There’s also a feature that profiles the life of a writer that’s tasked with “living the vida local.” He’s a confessed newbie the technology and learns as the story progresses. And, there’s a short list of “must-have” phones to enable your local life.

You can find the feature online here.
