NEW.COM -- May 26 -- Jambo tells you who in your network is nearby by checking to see if people you know are attached to the same Wi-Fi access point and then use Jambo's built-in instant-messaging client. Jambo is in testing on Windows Mobile phones and is working on supporting Symbian, RIM, and Palm OS. The Jambo technology is available for license to social networking sites. Other interesting experiments in finding Wi-Fi access point locations are SkyHook, Wigle, and Microsoft's own Location Finder (part of Windows Live Local). Social networking projects that track people and their locations include Dodgeball and Plazes.
