The 3G iPad won't be available until late April.

Users have to turn the tracking tool on for it to work. Many people already mention their location in their messages, so this new service can save them valuable real estate because tweets are limited to 140 characters.

Review: Fuji 3-D Camera

Fujifilm is breaking new ground by becoming the first company to offer a 3-D, point-and-shoot digital camera. The $600 Fine Pix Real 3-D camera also shoots 3-D video. But USA Today's Ed Baig said it's simply too complicated for the average consumer.

"Fuji does deserve some credit here for pushing the technological envelop," Baig said. While he thinks the camera itself looks good, he found the quality of the 3-D images to be a problem.
