The camera of the iPhone 4. The rear camera is...

I have not used this service, but since we recently talked about tagging and specifically geo tagging i thought this little service seemed interesting, especially the part that you only have to take a picture of the logo of the location you are at for the service to figure out where you are.

The first one click check-in and coupon delivery app!
Picalogo iPhone app enables you to get coupons and check-in to various services – like Foursquare and Facebook places – merely by taking a picture of the logo of the business you’re in! It’s everywhere in the business

I can envision a time where auto check-in will take pace when you take a picture of somewhere you are at.  Your cell phone already know the Lat and Long of where you are so it wouldn’t take that much.

Web Clipper – Evernote Corporation

Great tool for those doing research.  Evernote is a cloud application that I have found to be very helpful in collecting and organizing  data.

Web ClipperThe Evernote Web Clipper lets you save interesting stuff you see on the web. No more bookmarks, tabs, or open windows. See something you like, clip it and you’ll have it forever.Install Google Chrome extension

Many of the assignments students are given can be now completed on web sites.  Research, collecting information, sharing information is all done from a browser.  The old days of cataloging everything on 3×5 cards are not as convenient then simply clipping the content from with in page, or capturing the entire page to a service like Evernote.

A must have for anyone working in the WEB 2.0 world.
