Google opens London office to focus on Mobile apps

Silicon.com reports that Google has just opened it’s second London Office to concentrate on the development of mobile applications – although Google claim to have no plans to be developing location based services I seen this as clear evidence of LBS 2.0 moving forward.

LBS 2.0 I see as a range of applications where location is low lying component or driver, not an add on as the first generation of LBS applications. Every mobile application developed would use the context of the users location to determine the content provided, or a small screen for example would it not be useful to sot search results based on distance from your location ?

    Listened to the Richard Scase talk which was very interesting. Could you post the mp3 links (not a poddy!) for the remaining talks?

    thanks
