Basically an AR geocoded message service, where you have to be somewhere and look in the right direction through an iPhone camera to find the message marker (AR). I suppose with GPS/compass spoofing you might be able to defeat the location protection, but the service might be using image comparison from the phone camera to check that you are actually there.

Serious 1984 vibes here. Crowdsourcing the extension of CCTV networks for criminal history checks (arguably in realtime) feels like an overstep.

I like the quote "portable beef wellington". Though for practical eating purposes, substituting sliced roast beef or pastrami may make more sense, else you may be forced to go to the knife to eat it.

Teaming up with Jaguar and SR Drives to put out a electric vehicle range extender combining a high efficiency microturbine with a switched reluctance generator. I'm a little surprised Capstone or WilliamsJet isn't getting on the development grant gravy train for stuff like this.

Visualising MPs’ Expenses Using Scatter Plots, Charts and Maps « OUseful.Info, the blog…
Boy, I'd love to see what would happen if they did this in Japan. The media would have a field day for at least 6 months, just for national politician expenses, never mind the prefectural or local politicians. This would be an interesting way of naming/shaming/forcing to resign a large number of the old guard DPJ and LDP politicians at once to attempt by citizen pressure a political clean sweeping.
