As an outdoor person, we were most delighted to be given a chance to try out this new USB GPS travel logger by i-gotU. For those not familiar with what a GPS logger actually does, by attaching this tiny gadget to a backpack or just pocket it after turning it on, we will then be able to add GPS to keep a record or show others when and where we have been to together with details like the exact longtitude and latitude, speed, altitude, etc. To make sharing the details mentioned above even more easier, i-gotU comes with an extremely easy to use “@trip PC” (linked to www.a-trip.com account) software which functions as a data import client quickly allowing you to manage,geotag and share your recent trips onto blogs as well as photosharing sites such as Flickr and Picasa.

The LG Viewty Smart carries on the heritage of the first LG Viewty which was one of the first full touchscreen mobiles to sport a five-megapixel camera and direct video upload onto YouTube. Having sold over 6.5 million units worldwide, the second incarnation of Viewty offers even greater enjoyment while viewing and sharing, in addition to taking still and moving pictures, with a number of upgraded features in addition to its Intelligent Shot Mode. Main features of the new LG Viewty Smart GC900 include an 8 megapixel sensor with sensitivity up to ISO 1600, a higher resolution WVGA touchscreen, a more intelligent image processor and LGs easy-to-use S-Class User Interface (UI).

Here is another one of Google’s latest features to be released, Google Latitude. What Google Latitude does is that it lets you see your friends on a map within Google Maps for mobile and iGoogle. Of course, the person you want to see on the map will need to have the appropriate gadget, and you must have their permission first in order to see where they are.
An example of its use could be to plan a meetup with someone anywhere nearby at a point on the map, or see that a loved one has got home safely or just stay in touch (or spy) with friends! 😛
iPhoto has been updated with two features called “Faces” and “Places.” Faces, as you may have guessed, lets you tag photos by subjects’ faces, similar to what Facebook and Picasa have done. iPhoto makes its best guess as to the identity of a subject based on previous tags and asks for confirmation, which is pretty innovative!
Places allows for geotagging of photos. Some cameras and the iPhone 3G will use GPS information to tag photos. iPhoto then organizes those photos by location, or “place.” Also, Flickr and Facebook support are built-in. Those without GPS access can retro-tag photos by hand.
Just got your very first iPhone over Christmas and don’t know what on earth to do with it? Here’s an interesting list we have quoted from TechRadar which might offer you a few useful hinters.
