Introducing the answer to two vital questions of the day: Is it going to rain tonight? Whats going on in town?
Sure there are ways to find out, but none is as instant and personal as Here and now
. It allows you to get the local weather and events directly to your mobile browser - zero configuration, just click and go. Thats what the techy types among us call context sensitivity - for others like me it just works.
On Here and now
Weather and Events are the first services available, but the plan is to add more - eventually we might have a kind of urban survival guide. However, it all depends on the feedback.
The location information is based on Cell ID positioning, that is, the cellular network recognises the location of the device. GPS is not used to define the location. The location information of the device is only used to display relevant content to you and it is not saved or used for other purposes.
The content for Here and now is provided by 3rd party companies.
The service content is updated on a regular basis, the regularity depends on the service (weather, events, movies, restaurants).
