Yesterday at the Consumer Electronics Show in Vegas Google and Motorola announced a partnership to put Google services on Motorola phones. The new feature will allow users to bring up Google search features with the touch of a button on some phones. Directions Magazine speculates that this will lead to Motorola GPS enabled phones sending locations directly to Google rather than keying in a location. More interestingly, Google is supposedly working on a way to send, and of course charge someone, for location targeted ads. Thus, it appears our phones will no longer be spam free, moreover the spam will be location based. That should be great when you drive by your local strip joint or 24 hour book store.
