Elsewhere Online: Google Finally Adds Goggles To The iPhone

Update: Delete and re-install Google Mobile iPhone app to get new Googles feature immediately

Looking forward to trying out this visual search feature on my iPhone. The better camera in the iPhone 4 has increased the utility of many other scanning and augmented reality apps and I expect this will help with Google Goggles, as well. As the author noted, the updated app has not appeared yet in the Apple App store, but I will download it as soon as it is available. -- Douglas

Almost A Year After It Hit Android, Google Finally Adds Goggles To The iPhone:

"One of the biggest downsides of being in the iPhone camp rather than the Android camp is not getting early access to some of the cooler mobile things Google is working on. One of those is Google Goggles, a visual search feature that launched last December for Android. Now, almost a year later, it’s finally here for the iPhone as well.

As they’ve announced on their Google Mobile Blog today, Google has placed Google Goggles for the iPhone as a feature inside of their Google Mobile app on the device. That app, which already allows you to search via text and via voice, now is even more powerful."

Elsewhere Online: AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive

This story from TechDirt lays out yet another reason I recommend that folks DON'T use the email provided to them by their ISP. My typical recommendation right now is to get a Gmail account instead. It also points out why I want to manage all my SPAM on my end, without pre-filtering from an ISP. I will gladly manage my spam if it helps to insure that I see as many of my "real" messages as possible. Again, Gmail's tools work pretty good in this regard. Having an alternative email account also insures you will keep the same email, even if you decide to leave your current ISP. Witness all the folks holding onto AOL accounts just to keep their AOL email address. Thank goodness at least that is free now. AT&T's Spam Filter Gets A Bit Too Aggressive You can certainly understand why ISPs offer spam filters. It's a service for users who don't want to be totally bombarded with spam. But what I've never understood is that these ISPs rarely give the us

On my iPhone…IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS

IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS IFTTT (If This Then That) for iOS My best description of IFTTT, both their main web site, and this new iOS app is "a scripting language for the We." It allows you to set up "recipes" that watch one particular service, like Feedly, Evernote, Gmail and more, and then take action on another service whenever a particular action occurs. I use this to automatically save my shared items from Feedly and elsewhere into an Evernote Notebook and also use it to post automatically post information on a variety of services. The iOS app adds to this functionality by allowing you to take various actions on your phone and triggering IFTTT actions whenever they occur. In the case of the iPhone, initiating actions can include adding new contacts to your iPhone, taking a new picture and more.  For more complete information on how IFFTT works, visit ifttt.com    From the iTunes App Store...
