The New York Times has a brief article detailing a new service provided by Mapquest called Find Me. Running on Sprint phones with GPS capabilities, the service allows you to pinpoint your current location and view it on your cellphone. Probably more interesting is the feature that allows you to be viewable to others on your approved list. Thus the service has the ability to act like a social networking tool. Not really anymore details on the service just yet, and I am sure there will be issues with it when it goes live, but its a nice attempt at finding a good use for the GPS in some phones.
