Apple has posted a warning on their iPhone Developers news site, warning them not to use location data to provide location-based advertising in their iPhone applications. They are saying that CoreLocation, the API that lets apps see your location as GPS coordinates, should only be used by apps to provide "beneficial information", and not any sort of paid advertising to make the developer money.
Today Google announced that they've added location-aware search suggestions to Google.com on iPhone and Android devices. This means that if you're searching for a local restaurant called "Octane" in the Rockford area, Google will suggest "Octane Rockford IL" as a search suggestion instead of "octane fitness" as it would if it didn't know your location.
To use the new feature, you'll have to go to Google.com on your iPhone instead of using the Google search field built into Safari. You'll also have to turn on "Allow use of device location" for it to know your location in the first place. Once that's all squared away, suggestions appear as you type in the search field on Google.com.
