Today Sprint unveiled VeriPlace, a new set of tools that third party developers can use to create location-based mobile, Web, WAP, SMS and widget applications for Sprint. The tools use the same base software that is used by Sprint's Family Locator Service, so it maintains security and privacy, while also giving developers what they need to write location-enabled applications. It also reduces the difficulty of certifying applications that use GPS, triangulation and other location services.

I wish they would get the opinions from the people on the front lines, the sales associates. Cause when store managers report to higher ups, they lie to cover thier a$$e$ Evil or Very Mad

They are just getting desperate cause they keep loosing business so releasing the tools into the open allows them to try and focus on something else... Perhaps on retaining the existing business and attracting new customers...
