With hurricane season upon us, it’s important to have a
reliable weather-notification system available when you’re out on the road, and
at least one company may have an answer.
WeatherBug, a company best known for its weather information
software for personal computers, is launching a new service that uses Global
Positioning System technology to relay relevant and current weather information
to mobile devices, such as cell phones or PDAs, according to information on the
company’s Web site.
Because the software pinpoints the location of the mobile
phone, the information can be narrowed to include only the immediate area.
WeatherBug’s system involves special software that can be downloaded onto a
cell phone; however, other companies are also exploring the idea of using text
messaging as a means for delivering the information, the Washington Post reported.
