Google Maps Mobile My Location
for cell phones can now show you where you are on the displayed map. Nothing earth-shattering there, since comparable programs such as Microsoft's have been able to tap into a built-in or Bluetooth GPS for a while. But what Google bring to the table is being able to to using cell tower triangulation if a GPS receiver is not available.

They only claim 1km accuracy at this point, but that at least will put in the right part of town, and they helpfully show a light blue accuracy circle to give you a feel for the margin of error.
