What do you want to do with your iPhone? Well if it's "social photogeotagging," then Earthscape has the answer. But that's not the only thing that Tom Churchill is finding out about the application he's built. He first thought about building a "nav system" but then he wanted a nav system that made driving across Kansas interesting! Plus, Churchill believes that "crowd-sourced" information is becoming more than a trend and even he's not sure just where his user's will take him. But Earthscape is making it easy to point, shoot, geotag, and upload all in one push of the iPhone button.

There's no question there's currently an abundance of location information out in the world. How do we "protect ourselves" from that very information and those technologies? How much can we rely on automated systems to protect us from the dangers? How much must we do on our own? What types of protection do we not have that should be invented?

The announcement of a geolocation add-on for Mozilla's Firefox last week prompted lots of discussion around its role in the browser, its support of standards, and its use of Skyhook's wi-fi solution for location determination. Our editors peel back the layers to take on these and other issues including, does such a broker belong in the browser?

This podcast introduces NAVTEQ's Mapping and Positioning Engine or MPE. The MPE, a subset of the NAVTEQ database that is coupled with a microprocessor assembly, including a GPS chipset, was designed to support a variety of applications that assist the driver of a car or other vehicle to, for example, reduce gas consumption. It is more or less an alternative to a navigation system that is cost effective enough to go into most all vehicles regardless of price. According to Bob Denaro, NAVTEQ's vice president of advanced driver assistance systems, it's "a heartbeat in the car."

Many media outlets offer interactive maps to explore current data on the upcoming U.S. elections, including the option to create your own scenarios by assigning states to candidates. How do the sites compare? What's missing? Our editors praise USA Today's implementation, along with Yahoo's, and find at least one laughable offering. Hear about their likes and dislikes and how these interactive sites reflect the state of technology in the media and the demand for social tools.

Last week Google announced it would use only Tele Atlas data for its mapping applications, effectively dropping NAVTEQ, now owned by Nokia. Is there a data war? Or perhaps a browser war? Also: Microsoft reveals its vision for a tagged real world even as a Japanese company shows off its implementation of that vision. Is it time for real world geotagging? Our editors tackle these questions in this week's discussion.

Editor-in-Chief Joe Francica ran the LBS gauntlet last week by attending NAVTEQ Connections, CTIA and the SiRF Location 2.0 Summit. The big takeaway is the power of a single device to manage one business and personal life on a single location-enabled device. In the last year, Francica explains, LBS has become part of the enterprise. He and Executive Editor Adena Schutzberg explore the changes that have come with this growth.
