While location sharing is nothing new, startup Glympse has some key differentiators including a focus on real-time tracking and ephemeral sharing. Glympse lets you temporarily share your location w/ anyone by simply sending a link, accessible for a set period of time, from minutes to hours. The service can continually track your location if you choose to enable that feature, including traveling speed and arrival estimates. Even more interesting is their partnerships with Ford, Verizon, Gogo and more to enable sharing in-car, in-flight and anywhere else you may be traveling.
Hmmm, might be an easy (and relatively cheap) way to play around with Tor and learn a bit more about this anonymizing service. -- Douglas Adafruit’s Onion Pi is a Tor proxy that makes your web traffic anonymous, allowing you to use the internet free of snoopers and any kind of surveillance. Follow Adafruit’s tutorial on setting up Onion Pi and you’re on your way to a peaceful anonymous browsing experience. Tor is an onion routing service – every internet packet goes through 3 layers of relays before going to your destination. This makes it much harder for the server you are accessing (or anyone snooping on your Internet use) to figure out who you are and where you are coming from.
