I just wanted to talk about the iPhone, Apple's new product that should be debuting soon. Although actual product's looks are unclear, I know that Apple is betting on mobile telephones for their next information appliance. One specific feature will be the ability to search and download music (and other shared data?) with this cellphone from an automatically negotiated (rendevous) p2p (bluetooth?) network of other iPhones. This opens up the possibility of geographically relevant networking making technology more sociable. I'm guessing future applications will be along the lines of interests matching with strangers, etc. Anyways, enjoy.
