<<Since the launch of Google Latitude earlier this year, we've been getting a lot of feature requests. One of the most popular ideas was for Latitude to keep track of location history, allowing you (but not your friends) to see where you've been at any point in time. Another popular idea was to notify you when you're near your Latitude friends so you can easily meet up or grab lunch. Today, we're happy to introduce both Google Location History and Google Location Alerts (beta) to let you do even more with Latitude.>>

I would have expected the Latitude team to release a proper developer API along this announcement.

Finally they have implemented the obvious but highly useful feature of searching where I have been. It's one of the first features that comes to mind when playing around with a TomTom or Garmin. Glad the folks at Google got it.

I got the new TomTom and I could clearly see that it's not made by the same people anymore. It just sucked compared to the perl they had come with a long time ago.

By the way I wish people would stop giving away their ideas but rather form start ups and work together. But so few people think this way...

LOL, and this is fake because I'm not in Bethune currently ^^
Thanks Philipp, you made my day.

PS: for people who love the wonderful moustache and haircut of my avatar, it's an latino-american singer ;)

Excellent, I was actually wondering about your avatar few hours ago, when playing with Latitude. By the way, this Blogoscoped post may be the greatest Internet ad for Béthune ever :P
