Another paper with an interesting premise. I'm not sure that localization of distant landmarks is the 'killer app' for the capability -- rather, I love the concept of using computer vision techniques in conjunction with smartphone sensors, to create new context cues for mobile application developers. Another must-read paper.

Optimizations in caching are (as pointed out in the reviews) both desirable and dry in terms of research value. However, this paper is a must-read for me given the analysis of a real-world dataset and the diversity of HTTP libraries studied. On smartphones in particular, as more websites prompt the mobile user to download and install native apps (to complement or replace web visits), it will be interesting to see how (or if) new content-caching strategies emerge.

Thought the concept was an interesting one and am curious to learn more about variance in performance across a diversity of devices and under different ambient conditions. I found a version of the paper online (on the author's site at http://www.cse.msu.edu/~glxing/docs/COBRA-sub.pdf) in case useful to others for pre-reading. Definitely a talk I want to attend.
