Single purpose API
Sorry, No followers
On its Geo Developers Blog, Google announced time zone functionality for the Google Maps API. Developers around the globe have exhaled a sigh of relief, as time zone functionality has either kept them up at night, required extensive programming, or remained just a bit outside of an apps functionality because it wasn't mandatory (but sure would have been nice).
After much anticipation since its private beta release in March, Yahoo! has made Fire Eagle publicly available. Fire Eagle is an open geo-location platform that allows users to broadcast their geographic location to the Web while at the same time giving the the ability to easily control how and on which sites location data is shared (our Fire Eagle API profile).
