How about the GPS-enabled iPoo toilet locator? It’ll find you a public toilet in the UK, and if none are available find an open restaurant or bar. If none of those are available it’ll find, um, another location for you.

But, there’s more… Have you heard of Google’s new Gsat satellite? It’s in orbit and looking for you!

We Make Money Not Art (thatТs a blog) reports on Richard EtterТs Melodious Walkabout,  a navigation system. By playing back oneТs favorite music, seemingly from different directions, the application guides the user from where they are now to a target location. Pretty interesting, but will it sell?

I’ve been following Tiger Telematics and its Gizmondo, a GPS enabled gaming device, for several years. The GameBoy competitor has had an abundance of press coverage fueled by what I consider far too many press releases. This week Business 2.0 came out and predicted the product will be an unmitigated failure. It’s not that it isn’t cool or packed with features, it’s that there is not a compelling list of games to play on it and the price ($400) is too high. And, it suffers from being “jack of all trades, master of none.”
