Nokia’s Point&Find Technology Both Useful and Creepy

1277-471e7ce08b29d.jpg Nokia has used its The Way We Live Next show in Finland to reveal the company’s Point&Find system.

In a nutshell, the cell phone company is developing the technology to allow you to point your Nokia cell at any object — restaurants, cinemas, even that cute girl you see on the bus to work each morning (er, are you sure about this? Ed) — and the information will immediately be downloaded to your phone.
