Outside of CNET's office in downtown San Francisco, I tried out the live view augmented reality features of Google Goggles, which are intended to overlay information on shops and restaurants in front of you based on the GPS location of the device. You don't need to take a picture to use this feature, instead simply use the live camera view through Goggles.
With my Droid's GPS turned on, Goggles failed to give very accurate results nearby. Standing outside Tara, a Thai restaurant on Second Street in San Francisco, Goggles was unable to identify my location and instead returned results for restaurants a block or two away.
