In this episode, Chet and Tor talk talks with Patrick Robertson from the Location team about... location! We wax poetic about fine-grained location using Wifi routers (among other mechanisms), the Fused Location Provider API for apps that need location information, battery impact of location (and what we're doing to improve that), how GPS works (apparently it uses pieces of string!), and detecting 3D locations for finding where you are in a tall building.
