Gmail Labs keeps pumping out new features; I think I’ll need to check them much more regularly to keep up. Some don’t have a high utility value – they’re just fun, like this one: let Gmail add your location to your signature. There are two ways of achieving it. The common on is based on your public IP address, which is fine most of the time – unless you’re travelling and you’re in Rome while your email indicates you’re still in Syndey. A way around this little problem is to make sure your browser has a version of Gears that supports the location module. That way, Gears can make use of wi-fi access point signals to recognize that you’re actually in Rome.

How do you add your location to your signature? Easy: turn on ‘enable’ next to ‘Location in Signature’ from the Labs tab under Settings, then go to your signature preferences and check the box next to “Append your location to the signature.”
