Apparently a few sites have picked up my blog entry
I noticed the weather app says "no search results found" in certain locations, so expect that to improve as I debug that.
I think Nissan should just warn people about this (have an on/off switch), as well as cut back some of the unnecessary information. Make it just location, much like how your iphone asks for your location, and nothing more.
That way, we can enjoy a new generation of location-based RSS feeds. Near by traffic cameras? Virtual tours? location based wikipedia articles? Possibly some next proof of concepts that could be tried.
Also, it is interesting to note that RSS feeds support pictures, hyperlinks (it makes a QR code for your smartphone to read), as well as phone number and position. The annoying part is that you have to use the carwings namespace for that functionality. It won't do something normal like use the images and links already in the RSS feed!
Unfortunately, the link to the namespace referenced does not work, and I cannot read japanese on the carwings developer lab site. It will be a slow process
