A different way to use Google?


Notice I didn’t say new, because someone probably has done this before.

When I’m in a business, I often take pictures of their networking equipment and phone system with my phone.

I also often (unless I download/email them immediately) forget which equipment goes to which customer.

Then, I realized, my phone has GPS and it stores the GPS info as part of the info on the picture.

I entered the GPS coordinates into Google Maps and SHAZAAM; there was the business information I needed.

(Ok, I added the SHAZAAM, so sue me).

I’m convinced almost all of the information we need is either in the Bible, in the palm of our hand or our heads.


We just need to dig a little deeper sometimes.
