Rumours about next Mac OS X to calculate location

There are rumours that Snow Leopard, the Mac OS X to come, will have the possibility to calculate the geographic location of a Mac computer. Not, like the iPhone, also by GPS, but there are signs that the CoreLocation framework will be used. Developers can have the Mac to locate itself by a technique that was used in the first gen iPhone: the location of WiFi-networks and GSM cells. No GPS necessary…

With only WiFi the system will not be as accurate as with the assistance of these gsm cells. I am very curious how precise the location will be.
