    Interestingly enough the ad blocker I was running on my phone just now (Blockada) blocked that site completely. ;)

    But when I let it through the good news is that they don't know where I am, just where some server of my ISP's is. So on WiFi they locate me 30 miles from where I really am, on cellular data about 90 miles away.

    This is a pretty good app it even tells me where I am in Florida.

    I hope people can tell when I'm being sarcastic because I'm nowhere near Florida. I love to see programs when they malfunctions..:rolleyes:

    Not bad--except it has me in Monrovia, which is the next city over from me. ZIP code and weather station as Monrovia, too. But overall, pretty good.

    I know what you mean. The least they could do is buy you a nice dinner first.

    Well it still has me in Miami, Florida. My opinion is
    T-Mobile cell towers is doing some serious bouncing around the country. It only missed me by couple thousand miles but it works great:D

    It's got me in Glassboro, NJ this morning. That's about 50 miles away from where I actually am.

    Today It still has me as..
    "Please wait while we verifiying your request..."
    Along with a broken CAPTCHA.

    And with the apparently wayward locations, I think that site has problems and needs fixing.

    The UI is different than it used to be, so I would guess they did a major rework of the site and missed some bugs. Not to worry Mike, we all know you are in Bolivia. ;)

    Has anyone considered that we all might not be where we think we are?
