Google Goggles for mobile; wow!

They really did it this time in image recognition!
Now you can use your Android mobile to take photos of landmarks, logos, books, contact info and other things and use Google to search for it.
Take a photo of the Coca-Cola logo, and it’ll Google it.

Very nice!

New form of magazine reading?


I think this is a pretty cool concept. I really like the idea of dropping the endless sea of the internet and get a full editorial package with a definite ending. I would imagine we could save issues on the device and browse them as we wish, and maybe have an internet connection or USB connection so we can purchase new issues immediately. I think this is the perfect closer of the gap between the internet and physical media, so I hope we see some devices soon.
