[Update 9/25] It ran today on Morning Edition.

A piece [slated for today but apparently not run -ABS] today on NPR’s Morning Edition highlights the use of location-enabled phones (highlighting social networking tool Mologogo and Smarter Agent a tool for real estate agents). The story points out that only Sprint/Nextel make the location informatoin available to developers, making some, like Don Cooke of Tele Atlas, a bit annoyed. He and others want more access, not less. Vendors say the issue is privacy, but others say that the vendors simply want to make money from the information and are keeping a tight hold on the information, for now.

A press release explains that the same company that provides ESRI China’s DRM protection (first I heard fo it) now offers it for data delivered via Google apps like Maps, Writely, and Spreadsheet. The company is called AegisDRM. The release seems to suggest that the company itself would be ok if it were acquired by Google.
