Depending on your temperament, you'll have a different reaction to seeing a map of literally everywhere you've taken your iPhone (or 3G iPad) since you bought it.

If you've been playing around with Microsoft's Live Mesh syncing technology and tried it on your Windows Mobile device, then Flickr2Mesh, a simple application to download photos from your Flickr account onto your hard drive or mobile phone, might be of interest. As Aussie Live Mesh guru Angus Logan points out on his blog, the code could also be used as the basis for an application giving you access to your photos on multiple devices. If you want to mass-download Flickr shots but aren't ready for Live Mesh yet, check out previously mentioned Flump.

The new Sydney Sidetracks project from the ABC puts an intriguing twist on the Google Maps mash-up genre, linking historic video, audio and pictures to their locations online. Content on offer includes early images from Port Jackson in 1821, as well as more recent events such as the Hilton Hotel bombing. As well as being accessible on the site, you can download a version for use on your mobile phone, ideal for a walking tour of the inner-Sydney streets. With luck, we'll see similar efforts for other cities in the future (the site structure suggests other locations could easily be added).
