Last week at Where 2.0, Yahoo's Gary Gale discussed "geosetta", the concept of a geographic Rosetta Stone, which allows for a unified conversion of geographic namespaces based on different geographic reference identifiers (e.g., Yahoo's Where on Earth ID, or WOEID). The idea behind geosetta is that developers should be able to easily identify and cross reference a location among multiple service providers despite any disparities that may be inherent in the respective namespaces.
HTC announced the One smartphone this week, its new flagship device for the year. The One is a sequel to last year's well-liked smartphone and ratchets up the sex appeal with an all-aluminum design. Its feature set, which includes a luscious 5-inch HD display, zippy four-core Qualcomm Snapdragon processor, and shiny metallic colors, will let it compete well against similar phones from other manufacturers. HTC believes developers can plan a role in the One's success, too, with new APIs for the camera and BlinkFeed.
Chicago commuters just got a new resource that may lead to more helpful mashups: the Chicago Transit Authority Bus Tracker API. As recently announced, the API provides capability for developers to get bus routes and schedules, bus stop and arrival predictions, and more. Note that the API is not affiliated with the Chicago Transit Authority (CTA); rather, it was developed and is maintained by Harper Reed, who says the CTA has been "amazingly cool with all of this." In announcing the API, Harper wrote:
