Casio’s GPS-equipped EX-10HG camera gets a price, launch date

Monday, February 22nd, 2010
Last we saw Casio’s GPS-equipped EX-10HG it was still in prototype form at CES, but the company was back with it again at PMA this week, and thankfully was a bit more talkative this time. The big news is that the camera will be available in October of this year, and will cost “around $400.” That will get you a 12.1-megapixel camera that not only does geotagging of photos (with some accelerometer-based assistance when a GPS signal isn’t available), but can even double as a navigation system in a pinch — although it’s still not exactly clear how fully functional that aspect of the camera will be.

Microsoft My Phone helps find a lost HTC Pure

Saturday, December 26th, 2009

microsoft-my-phone-lost-found-cbs

It is a slow post-Christmas Saturday, a perfect day for a feel-good piece courtesy of CBS News and Microsoft. The short video segment showcases the Microsoft My Phone service which, amongst other things, allows users to locate and retrieve a lost mobile phone. Watch as host Natali DelConte tosses her AT&T HTC Pure into the back of a cab as it drives straight into the heart of New York City. Laugh Be concerned when the GPS signal fails and the phone is no longer traceable, seemingly lost forever. Smile when her phone is returned to her, not through some fancy GPS locating service, but through the kindness of others who responded to her phone’s “I’m lost, call Natali” distress message. No, it’s not the caliber of It’s a Wonderful Life but for a tech blog on a Saturday, it is about as heart-warming as you can get. Video after the break

Windows Mobile GPS Tracker Update on the way!

Thursday, September 24th, 2009

We have been working to update the current version of Window mobile Phone locator.

Our main vision with this software is for it to be a very light weight program that you can keep running in the background, and that will take up very few resources.

Additionally a small footprint will allow us to keep battery usage down as well as minimize the need to power on either the GPS radio, or the Cell radio- as each are tremendious drains upon ones cell phone battery.

Some main features we hope to incorporate:

- Ability to send a emergency txt/sms to your lost / stolen cellphone, that would trigger it to send back a gps location or to keep trying until it can get a gps signal.

- Ability to set the “ping” interval – thus controling how often your phone reports its location to this site under normal usage.

Again the key here is to make a free, lightweght program that allows us Window Mobile users to have some kind of premitive tracking abililty with out phone, with out slowing down the acutal phone or killing the battery life.

keep checking back for more info! or contact us below if you have any questions / suggestions.

tks
