Still to do
In the battle of Foursquare versus Gowalla in the location space, Gowalla is often thought of as “the pretty one.” But Foursquare has been attempting to improve their look and feel recently with a number of changes. The latest comes today with new profile pages. As you can see, the new user pages have a much cleaner design. Just as with the recently redesigned venue pages, Tips are now more clearly labeled and To-Dos are explained better. It seems clear that Foursquare is trying to move the service beyond the check-in and attempting to provide more utility to users with their other features. Foursquare Cleans Up Profile Pages, Hints At Key New Metrics?
Foursquare wants to be “the new age experience provider” for brands Foursquare‘s head of business development, Tristan Walker, in a panel today at TechCrunch‘s Crunchup conference said that Foursquare focuses on three levels of deals: mom and pop corner stores, retail chains and brands. Regarding brands, Walker said that Foursquare wants to be brands’ “new age experience provider.” Walker said that Foursquare’s business development team receives between 500-1,000 emails per day of new incoming inquiry, and Walker and his team of five tries his best to respond to all of them. we do charge for sponsored badge promotion

Send Destinations via Google Maps to Ford and GM Vehicles Google's "Send-To-Car" feature lets users send destinations from Google Maps directly to their vehicles. This feature previously worked with BMW and Audi vehicles, and now Google has extended its partner base for the program to Ford and GM. Owners of Ford, Lincoln and Mercury vehicles enabled with Ford's SYNC system, as well as Buick, Cadillac, Chevrolet, GMC, Hummer, Pontiac, Saab or Saturn vehicles via GM's OnStar navigation, can now take advantage of the "Send-to-Car" function.

Occipital, the people who brought you RedLaser, have just changed iPhone photography in a big way. With the announcement of 360 Panoramic, the company has brought real-time panoramic photography to the iPhone. Now you’ll need an iPhone 3GS or iPhone 4, running iOS, in order to use it, but the results are pretty stellar: So that’s the gist. You simply tap the screen to start and then turn a slow circle for 20 seconds. 360 Panorama brings real-time panoramic photography to the iPhone.
The current logo of the U.S. version of the show, introduced in its 23rd season. The Amazing Race is a reality television game show in which teams of two people, who have some form of a preexisting personal relationship, race around the world in competition with other teams. Contestants strive to arrive first at "Pit Stops" at the end of each leg of the race to win prizes and to avoid coming in last, which carries the possibility of elimination or a significant disadvantage in the following leg. Contestants travel to and within multiple countries in a variety of transportation modes, including airplanes, hot air balloons, helicopters, trucks, bicycles, taxicabs, cars, jeepneys, trains, buses, boats, and by foot. Clues provided in each leg lead the teams to the next destination or direct them to perform a task, either together or by a single member. These challenges are related in some manner to the country wherein they are located or its culture. The Amazing Race
Apple acquires Poly9. Apple Earth coming soon? In a huge announcement detailed on AppleInsider, we’ve just found out that Apple has acquired mapping company Poly9. Poly9 has done some amazing work with mapping, including the Poly9 Globe project, which is quite akin to Google Earth, but weighs in at only 303kb and can run in any platform. With this acquisition, it raises the question of whether Apple is planning to aim head-on at Google’s mapping and earth projects. It would certainly seem so, given Apple’s other acquisition of Placebase last year. There are no hard details about the amount of money involved, or any exact timing of the acquisition. For now, all we have is a “recently”, as Poly9 employees have been told to not discuss the deal.

Quantum memory may topple Heisenberg's uncertainty principle A quantum memory may be all scientists need to beat the limit of Heisenberg's uncertainty principle, according to a paper published in Nature Physics. According to a group of researchers, maximally entangling a particle with a quantum memory and measuring one of the particle's variables, like its position, should snap the quantum memory in a corresponding state, which could then be measured. This would allow them to do something long thought verboten by the laws of physics: figure out the state of certain pairs of variables at the exact same time with an unprecedented amount of certainty. Our ability to observe particles at the quantum level is currently limited by Heisenberg's uncertainty principle.
Last month an (almost) real-time tube map got people talking when it launched as one of the first projects to use Transport for London’s API. It was an exciting example of what can happen when open data is set free to be used by developers in whatever ways their imagination takes them. The problem is that apart from Transport for London, there really isn’t any real-time data out there for people to use – yet. Loved the real-time tube map? There’s more like it on the way…
By Katie Marsal Apple has purchased a Web-based mapping company from Quebec, Canada, that creates interactive 3D software for use in a browser, according to a new report.

Techonomy » Conference 2010 “What’s beautiful about software is that it makes complex jobs easy,” opines Andrew Hessel, a distinguished researcher at Autodesk, the software company best known for the design software, AutoCAD. What’s really beautiful about what Hessel and others at Autodesk are working on is what they’re building new design tools for—life itself. Hessel, who spoke at Techonomy’s November conferences in 2011 and 2013, sees the work Autodesk is involved in as a way to create greater access to the burgeoning field of synthetic biology and, along the way, turbocharge fields like energy and food production, manufacturing, and hopefully developing personalized, genetic-level tools for fighting, maybe even curing, things like cancer.

By Sam Oliver This summer, Apple quietly purchased the worldwide mapping company Placebase — one that competed with Google's own Maps product, featured on the iPhone. Reports of the purchase of Placebase, maker of Pushpin and openplaces.org, first surfaced in July. They were confirmed this week by ComputerWorld, as the company's former CEO, Jaron Waldman, is now allegedly part of the "Geo Team" at Apple. Apple purchased Google Maps competitor Placebase - report
The Audition - The Producers (1968)
Last week I was in San Francisco, ostensibly to meet with fellow Nokians in Mountain View and Palo Alto, the homes of Google and Stanford University respectively. But I was also there to take part in a panel on the topic of “is geo loco a business or a feature?” at the Geo-Loco conference, chaired by geo-eminence grise Marc Prioleau. With the explosion of interest in all things geo recently (and for once I think the hyperbole is justified) and thus a large amount of new conferences on the topic, I was somewhat skeptical of how Geo-Loco would pan out.
