Apple is reportedly going to overhaul its MobileMe web service and add some location features akin to Foursquare.

Lending some credence to this notion is a report at Patently Apple that Apple applied for a trademark of the word “Places” in Europe.

It’s already been done by Twitter, Facebook, and Google.

Enough already!
