An interesting article that just went up on Amerisurv look at Visualizing the National Geodetic Survey Control Stations in Google Earth. I was interested in this quote by the author… “Google Earth is rapidly becoming the land surveyor’s tool-of-choice for preliminary job site reconnaissance and survey planning” See the article by Thomas Davis HERE

Interesting stuff out of Forum Nokia… AgencyNet has released Pepsi “Kung Fu Fighting” Widget, a mobile software application that is part of an international TV ad campaign for the Pepsi brand and beverages that began airing last week in certain Latin American markets. The “Kung Fu Fighting” mobile application, built using browser-based “Widget” technology from Nokia, enables mobile subscribers to play a game, view exclusive media, and link to the Pepsi website through devices based on S60 from Nokia and other manufacturers, as well as Nokia Series 40 devices. The Widget is available for download exclusively on www.pepsimundo.com.
Forum Nokia provided the referral to the mobile development team of AgencyNet, which is a member of the premium-level Forum Nokia PRO developer program. (See forum.nokia.com)
Once again another way cool Nokia S60 smartphone is now available in the USA, this time it’s the N96. At first you might think that this one is a follow-up to the fabulous N95 or N95 8GB but don’t even think it – the N95 has been such a hit that it’s gonna be impossible to improve upon it let alone replace it! I wouldn’t even speak the names of these devices in the same breath as the N95 (8GB) outclasses this device hands-down (in my opinion). I guess what’s odd once again is that Nokia and their PR arms have promoted the crap out of this device for a few weeks now and yet you have to wonder, does anyone really care??
I’ve been a long-time fan and user of Nokia Sports Tracker. Infact, I’ve considered it to be one of the best location-aware mobile apps anywhere… hands-down! To date the app has been fun, simple to use, and useful, however, it lacked in the “sharing” capabilities… ie. it’s been tough to share my tracks with others and to tell my contacts about new sports tracks. No more though thanks to a clever little widget that the team has developed. The Nseries widget enables users of Sports Tracker to embed sports tracks within several popular social networking resources, including: blogger, facebook, igoogle and a couple of others.
Got documents on your PC that are ticking you off?? Here’s a fun way to unload those old documents from your PC or mobile… the Nokia Unloader. Unloader is a very clever app where you can actually unload your documents (word Doc, spreadsheet, txt files etc…) they get uploaded to the server and then recycled, shredded, or even burned! For every 100 documents that get unloaded Nokia will plant a tree in Brazil.
Check it out for yourself and watch as your document actually gets unloaded before your eyes… quite clever… useful??? you tell me! See http://the-unloader.com
Another cool location-aware app for iPhone… aren’t all the coolest apps location sensitive?? This one from Denver-based useful networks, Users can also check snow reports, mountain cams and weather forecasts to get up-to-date information on their favorite resorts as they plan their next ski vacation, or just their afternoon on the slopes.Built for snow sports addicts by snow sports addicts, Snocator is the only iPhone application to use location-enabled ski maps to show snow sports enthusiasts where they are on the mountain, with all nearby lifts, runs, lodges, terrain parks and more pictured in detail. The mapping feature is available at most ski resorts in the U.S. and Canada. See more
