GPS Cellphones

Joi Ito is trying to convince Casio to make a Blog Camera. Great idea.

And today on the same page as that article on Mitch Kapor, is an article on Shazam's cellphones. If there's a song playing in a cafe for example, it will compare it to a database of 1.6 million songs and name that tune for you. I have doubts about the need for such a device, but I thought of something else that would be cool.

First some background. A few years ago I bought a present for my tech-gadget crazy cousin (yes, it runs in the family). It was a GPS. He loves sailing, you see.

Well one day, I'm in the car with him, visiting a corporate customer of his and he had been there once before 2 years ago. He pops open the GPS I gave him and blip blip blip, there's one blip where we are and another blip where the customer is. Had I bought it a couple of years later, he tells me, we could have been given directions and had streets laid out in front of us.

Anyways, yesterday I was in a car going to that Halloween party and had to call my friend to get directions, which were given but weren't that accurate. I thought it would be cool if standard with cellphones would be the ability to send the co-ordinates from one phone to another so you could see exactly where you have to go.

Casio may widen the use of GPS' technology through free gadget owning. i think it would be beneficial to casio and other companies to venture in this little idea for technology is on a fast pace and is on the verge of development.
