    Now that the iPod touch has a camera. do you think geotagging would be a possibility? As a Mac user, I would love it for iPhoto's places

    I know the iPod touch has no GPS chip but couldn't it pull location data if you were connected to Wi-Fi and use that? Say I'm at Starbucks and I take a picture of a friend, I wouldn't get like coordinates but I could get the general location of where the photo was taken

    Apple hasn't elaborated on this at all so Apple reps wouldn't know and I've emailed Steve Jobs about it but he of course isn't going to reply. So what do you guys think? is it even possible? would Apple do it?

    I would think the new iPod Touch will do this.

    Only way it could do this is via google maps. But as far as I know there is no functionality for that at the moment.

    But Google maps can identify where you are because they got the wifi signature from their streetview cars.


    (I think)
