    When I was fooling around with the camera, I received a notification asking if i would allow it to use my location. What exactly does this mean? Does it mean that it puts in the gps location of where the photo was taken? And if so, how do I use that info embedded in the photo?

    Second, I haven't actually been receiving that notification anymore, so how do I know if it's embedding that info into the pic or not?

    Yes.

    Services such as Flickr take advantage of this extra meta-data. Try uploading one of your pictures.

    Cool, thanks..

    Also, does it automatically embed this information? Because, again, I don't get any notifications for it asking me if i want to embed it anymore, as i did when i first got my phone.

    If it does this by default, how do you enable/disable it?
