Year Of The PowerBook: Panther

Sources close to the PowerBook development team at Apple disclosed that with Panther (probably Mac OS X 10.3, July/August 2003) mobile Macintosh users will get more features from OS 9 back. One of the most requested features among them is a full featured location manager.

In Mac OS X 10.2.x, some parts of the old (Classic) location manager are not really needed. For example, your network connections can all be active at the same time, and most of the time, 'Automatic' works quite well. already supports multiple SMTP servers (it asks you which one to use if the standard one doesn't work). Together with Rendezvous, tightly integrated mobile phone access (Bluetooth, GPRS), the Panther version of Location Manager won't be an application, but like 'Favorites' rather an underlying technology that will 'just work'.
