Physorg has the scoop on a new GOOG offering called My Location by releasing an updated version of its Google Maps for Mobile application.

GOOG is testing technology that will find the location of people using its mobile mapping service, even if the phone making the connection isn’t equipped with a GPS receiver.

Not as accurate as GPS but at least this system works indoors.

The privacy concerns are mounting and the possibilities for GOOG to finally take their place as Big Brother are staggering.
