Yep, I'm annoyed that we have a better solution, and it was originally held up by petty bureaucracy, and now is being held up by whatever development cycle they're using over at Google.

How cool is it that your phone could tell you where you are within a circle one meter wide? It's already pretty amazing that it'll do it within a 10 foot circle. And once they start taking advantage of dual-frequency GPS/GALILEO/GLONASS, it'll be accuracy of something like 0.3 meter/1 foot.

Stuff like driving directions will be able to tell you when you're in the wrong lane. Places like stores could use it to guide you to the product on the shelves. And I imagine it could take a lot of the fun out of geocaching.
