    The iPod touch uses the Skyhook service. It really only works in and around metropolitan areas, though users can "tag" their routers to be part of the network anywhere.

    It didn't work for me, then I signed up my outer on skyhook, and a couple if weeks later it finds me just fine.

    I signed up the skyhook thing several times and gave it several months and it still doesn't work...
