Windows 8 Release Preview–Location services

This is the release candidate in all but name – the Windows Server 2012 is known as the Release Candidate which is confusing.

 

I don’t intend to write full reviews but just little notes of things I discover as I’m experimenting.

 

Just been puzzling over the maps app & the location it showed for me. Finally dawned on me that it was showing the position of my ISP!

Turned that off as it is more confusing than useful in that case.

    In the last release the weather app knew exactly where my laptop was. I think it was using WIFI hotspot data to locate it as it doesn’t have any location devices.
