HP's Social Computing Lab said it's busy developing Gloe, a cloud service that allows users to tag, search for, find, and bookmark pages relevant to their location.
"HP Gloe is a geo-tagging experiment from HP Labs that attaches Web content to specific geographic locations, HP explains. "Gloe aims to provide a platform for location-based discovery of relevant information for mobile Web users, a growing subset of Web users that a recent survey by the Pew Internet & American Life project found had doubled from 2007 to 2009."
This is sort of new territory for HP, which exactly known for these kinds of mobile apps. But with the recent acquisition of Palm, Gloe could quickly become a native app on Palm smartphones, or even tablets, eWeek surmises.
