Geolocation Services and Bing Maps in Windows Phone 7

Tonight I gave a brief talk to WinMo LA about using Geolocation Services and Bing Maps on Windows Phone 7. I mostly covered the APIs and controls that developers can use in the current Windows Phone SDK, the steps developers need to take in order to protect a user's data, and some of the future things that are changing in Mango for Windows Phone 7 developers.
