Lost iPod Touch

The iPod Touch has a built-in feature which allows it to determine your rough location based on the WiFi access point to which you are currently connected. Well, it appears there's something seriously wrong with the program - here's what I got for a search for finding nearby pizza places.


Zooming out on the map a bit (the blue circle is my estimated location), it appears I'm in Denmark!


Apparently my condo has an unknown Tardis-like function. When I look out my window, it seems I'm in Woonsocket, RI, but obviously the inside of my condo is actually in Denmark. Or maybe my iPod has really powerful WiFi antenna and I'm connected to someone's WiFi AP in Denmark...

Maybe rather than leaving your remarkable condo you should simply call tham for a delivery!

Hey, look on the bright side, those Tardis-like functions might come in handy one day.

That's better than my ipod, it couldn't even find my location.
