IsWHERE is a log of my thoughts, reflections, and news/blog links on the emergence of image and video geospatial tagging. On May5th this year, I opened a second blog to deal with more detailed aspects of tools for FalconView and TalonView can be found at RouteScout. Trends I want to try and follow are the various disruptions resulting from spatial smart-phones, how many GPS devices are out there, smart-cameras, and other related news. And yes, I have a business interest in all of this. My company Red Hen has been pioneering this sort of geomedia for more than a decade.
So beyond a personal blog, I also provide a link to IsWHERE a shareware tool created by Red Hen Systems to readily place geoJPEG or geotagged imagery and soon GEM full motion media kept on your own computer(s) into Google Earth/Map from your File Manager media selection. Works great for geotagged images from Nikon, Ricoh, Sony, iPHONE, Android and all geo-smartphones that can create geotagged images. IsWhere - read about it
The USPTO said in a filing that an Oregon company, Integra Telecom, owns the "Nexus" trademark and Google's smartphone might lead to confusion. A Google spokeswoman was not available for comment by press time but told Market Watch that the company will stand by the name.
Timing for the rejection was less than ideal. In the past 48 hours, both Sprint and AT&T announced availability of the Nexus One, which means the device is now available on every major carrier in the United States, as well as with Rogers in Canada.
