As a great example of a cool use of this technology enter MeetWays, a clever mashup that enables users to enter 2 locations (detailed or simply using zip codes) along with a variable (like pizza or coffee etc...) and in return you get returned locations that are aprrox in the middle... imagine, I enter your zip and mine and we determine a half way point to meet-up.. this is awesome!!
See also the HTTP Geocoding service for server-side geocoding, and the GClientGeocoder class for client-side geocoding

And a killer scene with the 3 US dudes that aren't carrying their phones with them (you know, roaming charges!) a tip, when in Europe check out one of the carrier shops and grab yourself a pre-paid SIM for cheap cheap, enabling you to actually use your device, if anything else you can use unlimited data while there! And then the lady with the iPhone thats getting slooooooower and sloooooower.. gee, haven't heard that complaint for some time! Enjoy the show and thanks guys!

After searching the web for how to contact the blogger team -- good luck with that one!!! - it seems many others are having the same mis-fortune.
For one, I'm very pi#@#$#@$ed off about this, particularly since I'm off to San Diego for the ESRI UC bnext week and had planned on blogging.. great! So, if anyone from Google happens to read this, maybe contact me (glenn at gisuser.com) and offer up some help or advice. Otherwise, WordPress is sure starting to look good!!

Some of the features:
WRT makes it easy for anyone with Web development and design skills to create mobile applications. Developers can port desktop widgets to WRT with very little effort — using existing authoring tools.
The new Nokia WRT widgets use the same service back-end as Nokia’s WidSets mobile widget community to optimize content for mobile environments, so the operations end of the equation is taken care of.
See widgets.nokia.mobi and test for yourself

Seems to me that perhaps if an app like Geomarc was embedded into cameras it would be useful in tracking metadata on such "leaked" images

- the uLocate WHERE developer platform is the developer tool of choice this year for LBS apps - 10 of the top 15 apps used WHERE!
- The Nokia N95 seemed to be the device of choice for demos - most of the demos I saw were running on the N95, although not the N95 8GB... odd!
- According to Navteq, more than half of this years' apps incorporated some form of user-gerated content - of note, last year the hot trend was social networking apps.

About the App... It allows posting of the content as text, image, audio or video, to a Web log (blog) directly from the mobile phone using any type of available network (mobile phone or Wi-Fi network). The application allows saving the work for later posting in the case there is no available network or to allow selection of a network with larger up-link bandwidth (faster posting) or lower cost (for example a free Wi-Fi HotSpot compared to a mobile phone network). Wavelog does not restrict users to a specific blog hosting provider, social network or an intermediate content aggregation. It permits a complete freedom for choosing blog hosting provider or even installing own blog publishing system on the Internet, extranet, intranet, or a local area network. It is designed for performance, scalability and reliability, so it is coded in C++ programming language as a native Symbian OS application. Wavelog does not use any form of usage tracking for targeted advertisement or direct marketing purposes. See http://www.telewaving.com/wp/
