Search Briefs: Cameraphone Searching; Google Lawsuits in Germany (Withdrawn) and France (Lose)
+ Cameraphone Searching in Japan (via SEW Blog)
Greg Sterling offers a great review of today's NY Times article. For more on something similar, cameraphone searching, take a look at this comprehensive ResourceShelf post from a few months ago. We mention several products, word of research from MS and a look at several services including Semapedia. Btw, we also include a mention of some cameraphone searching availability in Japan since 2003. More on the service from NeoMedia in this announcement.
