Your phone can hear you

SoundSense is an app that uses the microphone on your cell phone to listen to your environment and figure out where you are.

The privacy ramifications are fascinating, of course, though not much different from those of geolocation. But the convenience! You could set your phone to figure out when you’re driving/in a meeting/in class/at a movie and turn off the ringer by itself. Or it could have a threshold for when your toddler is sounding a little too cranky at a restaurant, at which point it would start playing Sesame Street podcasts.
