Google Provides More Great Technology – GPS Simulation For Web Enabled Cell Phones

(Best Syndication) You don’t have GPS on your computer or cell phone? No problem, because Google has developed a simulated GPS experience on your cell phone using information broadcast from mobile phone towers. “My Location” extrapolates your approximate location by information provided by the phone companies.

It is accurate to within 10 city blocks. The company is still in the Beta version for this technology. "It's not GPS, but it comes pretty close (approximately 1000m close, on average)," Google reports. The system works on web-enabled phones including Java, BlackBerry, Windows Mobile, and Nokia/Symbian devices. Apple iPhone users can not take advantage of the service yet.

Viewty LG KU990 - Better Than The iPhone?

LG KU990 Viewty

With all the hype of the current release of the Apple iPhone you would be forgiven for not being familiar with LG’s latest offering, the LG KU990 Viewty. As with the iPhone handset the Viewty allows you to navigate its menus and features with the touch of a finger. But LG have added a few features to the Viewty that the iPhone is sorely missing. Could this touch screen technology underdog really be better than the iPhone?

The LG KU990 Viewty is equipped with a 5-megapixel camera including a xenon flash and auto focus which puts Apple iPhone’s 2-megapixal offering to shame. The camera can also be switched to capture high speed motion footage and includes a unique feature that allows you to watch the video replay in slow motion. Combine this with the option to automatically upload to YouTube and you can plainly see why the Viewty is genuine competition for the iPhone.

[Best Syndication] NBC Universal and News Corp. have launched a beta run of their new website Hulu.com which is aimed to compete with YouTube with their content from TV shows. The shows are being offered for free viewing, but you will see about 2 minutes of advertisements for every 30 minutes of video. This really isn’t that bad considering regular television is so full of commercials.

It becomes confusion when the networks are showing television shows at their main websites too for free. It looks like you might get some old TV shows on the Hulu website though, which could be fun to watch.

The down side to watching TV shows on your computer is that it isn’t instant like your television. If you have Tivo your programs are ready waiting for you when you are ready to watch them, no streaming video.

(Best Syndication) Apple announced that they will open their new iPhone and iPod up for developers to write programs. There should be a special software development kit available in February, which should "provide an advanced and open platform to developers while at the same time protect iPhone users from viruses, malware (and) privacy attacks."

Previously the company has limited outside development to their web browser “Safari” which is used by their devices. Developers have complained that the company tried to control the iPhone too much. This decision could help the company in the long run and could make their devices even more popular. More than 1 million iPhones have been sold since it was released on June 29.
