More geotagging goodness.

Ovi have now added geotagging…

“We have had a lot of questions about geo-tagging capabilities in the forums. Good News! It is now working! Media that includes location data in the EXIF headers will now be displayed correctly on the map. Share on Ovi will recognize if GPS information has been embedded in the photo and will display a map of where the photo was taken. Users without GPS enabled cameras can still add location information once the media has been uploaded.”

So now I still have to work out do I upload to flickr, picassa or Ovi for auto geotagged maps. This is getting silly now. Like most things everyone wants to be apart of the action. At the moment for me, Flickr for photos from a legacy thing more than anything, but I prefer the google maps in Picassa and Ovi is a long way behind. However the push for new mapping e.t.c that they have announced just today may well see me jump ship. The catch is for me is that does OVI become a nokia only space? Will other people with other devices come on over or not. If they don’t I wont either. Chicken and egg I guess.

More from Nokia Maps…

“Planning trips on your Nokia smartphone is about to get a lot easier. Today at Where 2.0, the Finnish cell phone manufacturer announced Maps on Ovi, a Web component designed to complement its mobile mapping software, Nokia Maps 2.0. As part of the Ovi brand of Internet services, which includes the Nokia Music Store and N-Gage gaming platform, Maps on Ovi will allow users to plan their trips on their desktop or laptop and then synchronize (automatically or manually) it with their smartphones. Conversely, if you’re already out on the road, you can record routes and points of interest on your handset and then upload them to the Ovi service when you return home to share with family and friends. The interface on the Web side is similar to what you’d see on your phone for ease of use and a more seamless experience.”

For me it means planning and everything on the dual 24″ monitors at work… uploading to the phone and then driving… plus it has to be quicker and easier to use the computer to refine routes and information that using a phone as well.

I quit golf over Iraq war: Bush

US President George W Bush has revealed that he quit playing golf in 2003 out of respect for the families of US soldiers killed in the conflict in Iraq, now in its sixth year.

“I think playing golf during a war just sends the wrong signal,” he said in an interview for Yahoo and Politico magazine.

“I don’t want some mum whose son may have recently died to see the commander-in-chief playing golf. I feel I owe it to the families to be in solidarity as best as I can with them.”

What a load of crock! The rehumanising of a war mongering idiot continues. Quick lets rebuild my personality before I leave office for starting a war based on BS and following my fathers legacy. Even Dick managed to keep shooting whilst a war was on, but old George stops golf. Please try another one. I think it had more to do with his lack of ability at playing golf than any respect for the young americans he sent to die.

So the question should be, what should he have given up.
