    SoLoMo (social, location and mobile) is a trend larger than any single app or company and it will encompass every industry on the planet. Startups like FitBit, Tripit and RunKeeper are already leveraging location-aware smartphones to provide users with reports about their health, travel or exercise habits. You can expect nearly every product you touch to eventually provide this type of personal data to you.

    The future of mobile location will see the integration of location-enabled features and insights into every product you touch and every process you engage in during the course of your life, providing great efficiencies and incredibly valuable insights.

    The emergence of mobile location over the last few years has laid the foundation for anywhere computing and the future of that is exactly what the name says: anywhere computing. Provided we can keep electricity flowing, expect the next generation of devices such as your home appliances, your car, and your television, as well as your smart phone, pad or laptop to engage with you and to know where you are and what you're doing.

    The speed of its integration is accelerating, so what opportunities does this throw up for smart entrepreneurs?
