SMWNY: When will location-based services stop being fads and start getting real?

Twitter is over three years old and many people still don't get it. Just last week, The NewYorker's George Packer called it “crack for media addicts.” But will real-time oversharing services make it into the mainstream?

At The Future of Space and Time talk during Social Media Week in New York on Wednesday, panelists from the tech world noted that conditioning larger audiences to share their real-time info and location will be necessary for such technologies to truly take off.

And for advertisers, this could be the key to actually serving those relevant ads everyone's always talking about.

Foursquare and Bravo try to bridge the digital divide — one check-in at a time

As television audiences shrink, the networks are suddenly very interested in partnerships that bridge the digital divide. That might help explain why a big brand like Bravo TV would announce a partnership with a tiny startup like Foursquare today. And it might just work.

Starting this week, Foursquare will start awarding its users with badges that have Bravo themes when they visit over 500 locations associated with the network. The announcement is just one of many partnerships Foursquare has been quickly announcing, and it is just the kind of thing that networks need to do if they want to connect their television audiences with digital and real world products.

Hello iPad, goodbye Kindle?

Apple's big announcement came and went this morning with more than a few surprises and disappointments (including a name that has made some women less than happy). But one unexpected announcement — a price point at less than half expected estimates — leaves a question unanswered. If the iPad only costs $499, is this the end of the Kindle?

Apple is certainly gunning for Kindle territory. After presenting the odd juxtaposition of Steve Jobs standing in front of a Kindle today, the Apple founder took a jab aimed directly at the heart of Amazon's e-reader business.

Google isn't going to let a little failed purchase of Yelp get in the way of its expansion into local mobile advertising. The search giant today added "Near Me Now" fuctionality to the iPhone.

And while results may not be thorough today, Google is providing plenty of incentive to small businesses to sign up with Google local and help the search engine achieve the kind of dominance in local that it has mastered online.
