Ericsson said Monday it has begun offering U.S. wireless carriers its new network equipment that automatically e-mails a cell phone user's exact location to friends or loved ones.
The Swedish company's equipment uses software called Where Are They Now, developed by Israeli wireless software maker LocatioNet. The software lets cell phone users create a list of friends or relatives who have permission to receive location information. Users can choose how frequently the e-mails are sent.
Hope they keep it between friends.
