    So I was thinking about being lost in the wild or something with my iBook and I somehow get a wi-fi signal, but I can't find where it is to get help, all I know is that even when it's really strong there is nothing in sight. I was wondering if there is an app that can find a wifi signal and map where it is exactly. Like distance away from you.

    Okay...a rather strange topic and not really feasible if you're "lost in the wild," but I'll bite.

    Microsoft did some work on triangulation using Wi-Fi access points. You can read a bit about it here.
