    Yeah, because Streetview is just so handy. Not.
    Reminds me of "Coverflow" for the iPhone. Yea, it's cool, but really kind of useless.
    hehehe

    Still, I will agree it is cool we can have that feature on our Q's now.

    Anyone get their "My Location" to work? I keep getting a "your current location is temporarily unavailable". I hope it is a temporary thing. Coz we just got it working when we updated to wm6.1. I'd hate to lose the feature again.

    Your prob right. I'll check later when I get to work. At least I know my location had previously worked there.

    this may be a stupid newb question, but do you download that jad file from your phone or to your cpu and sync it? When I try to sync it to my phone and select it from the file manager, it looks like its about to download and stays tehre on the screen without downloading anything. I have to hit cancel and start over again witht he same results... whats the dealio?

    Thanks. I figured it out too.. I tried to download it with opera but I think it initially wasnt working because opera runs through my jbed program which kept shutting down, probably because I needed the jbed program to open/download/run the file...

    Using PIE instead of opera was the key to downloading it...

    Yeah.. this is sweet! Finally! Was kinda enviousof Iphone and Blackberry users having this.
    For the record, "My Location" worked fine for me.
    I just spent sometime looking at the house where my friend and his family lived before he moved to Texas and his family moved to Staten Island. Had a lot of fun over at that house. Barbecues, late night hangouts, crash pad after a night of boozing...

    I had the same question about "this sh*t"! (In my mind, calling something that is usually bad!)
