bash one-liner, Get GPS location and street Address
Combine the power of Google location services with the power of nix shell tools, and you are able to answer the age old question of "Where am I?" right from the comfort of your bash shell! This short article shows you a bash onliner that connects to Google and gets what Google thinks is your GPS location and street address. Quoting the author "If the returned information is wrong, or some kind of "unknown" .. Consider yourself lucky, very lucky! That means Google does not (yet?) know where your wifi AP is. For the rest of us .. tin-foil all the way"
