I keep reading that the HTC Apache platform does not have built in GPS, buit I have experienced where I am travelling, and my phone seems to be able to inform an application where I am. For example, I was pulled into a Starbucks 700 miles from home and when I input an address to MSN to find an address local to where I was, MSN drew a map from the specific address of Starbucks where I was sitting at the time to the address I had input, which was about three miles away. I infer that MSN was somehow able to tell where I was. If not GPS, then what was it using?
