Dear all,

just a remark.

Yahoo! Research is working on ZoneTag. Over a server the mobile
phone gets good suggestions for tags which other users have added
to photos taken at the same place / the same cell id.
http://research.yahoo.com/zonetag/

I would not suggest voice tags on mobile phones not bo be practical
these days as speech recognition in typically noisy mobile
enviroments is a still unsolved problem.

Kind regards,
Susanne
