    Interesting news

    I'll hide my head in shame and admit I wasn't sure at first what Geo-tagging was

    So for anyone else thinking the same thing this wikipedia link is helpful

    the camera app is getting geotagging, the maps app doesn't appear to have changed other than asking you permission to use the locate me feature (which could really get annoying)

    Makes sense and is a nice feature to have lon and lat already in exif-metadata of your photos. using it on maps - as thecompkid said - could get annoying.

    It would not put maps to sleep when the iPhone usually would, put the blue pulsing ball (introduced in Beta 3) in maps and probably drain your battery cause it has to get feeded by new lat/lon data every couple seconds. That would either require an internal or external gps-module (much speculated about) work all the time or have to update with skyhooks database via GPRS/EDGE/3G frequently if the location of wi-fi networks is used to recalculate. Same for battery if triagulation of cell towers has to be re-done frequently.

    For using the camera that only has to be done on a one-time basis when the photo is taken. Such photos could then interact perfect with Google services like Panoramio (http://www.panoramio.com/) and others. Plus geodata are already used by some apps on the Mac like Preview and Aperture.

    just my 2 cent

    cool!
    iphone 2.0 is really shapin up to be one hell of an upgrade.
    Last beta i used was "d" i really liked the foto savin feature.. i didnt wanna go back to the
    "old" one but i was forced to cuz there were no apps to mess around with . I have to be honest too i NEVER! heard of that technology befor , the names obvious tho. Now wut i would like to c is video recordin (its possible now) n file downloadin, apple style baby! , i mean they have to make their users happy somehow, they have the techlogy.
