In this column, editors Eyal de Lara and Keith Farkas review initiatives that use cell phones as document scanners, as the basis for building large-scale environment monitoring systems, and to map physical objects to Web pages. They also review technology that lets you recover a document's original color from a grayscale version and a tool that automatically synchronizes files across multiple devices. Finally, we examine new additions to Nokia's Nseries of mobile phones, a compact GSM/General Packet Radio Service (GPRS) radio with a footprint of just 2.3 cm<font size="-1"><sup>2</sup></font>, and a system that prevents digital cameras from recording still and moving images, which present an interesting approach to addressing the privacy concerns raised by ubiquitous systems.
