Plazes goes Nokia

Return trip from Istanbul according to Plazes
A more interesting piece of news today was that Nokia has acquired Plazes, the WiFi positioning company. I've been a Plazes user for quite a while and am using it as a position source for my website in addition to Fireeagle.

I hope the acquisition will increase Plazes' resources to develop and expand the service to new areas of mobile positioning. The Rails port of Plazes a year ago seemed to hurt their usage numbers quite badly, but the new directions they've been recently following have been promising.

Maybe a good time to start preparing a new release of MaemoPlazer, our Plazes client for Nokia's Linux platform?
