Nokia adds GyPSii social networking app to GPS-enabled sets


Nokia and GeoSentric (née Benefon) have signed a deal to put the GPS-enabled GyPSii application on the Nokia N95 and 6111 handsets. The GyPSii software's magic lay in its ability to encode a "where" stamp -- you know, location instead of time -- in pics and vids you create with it. Users can then share this content on the GyPSii site -- or presumably some future Nokia site -- and see where their friends were when they took the pics or captured the videos. Of course, misuse -- or accidental use -- of this system will likely end is tears, misery, and divorce so buyer beware.
