    What is mobile terminal, what does it do.
    Any comments, info or screen shots or instruction on how it works would be helpful.

    Well, it's a unix terminal for the mobile OS X on the iPhone. It works very much like a desktop terminal, providing a BASh like shell.

    Is Google down? :)

    It's a terminal emulator for your iPhone, hence Mobile Terminal. Check Cydia for more info?

    lol

    On your Mac, go to /Applications/Utilities/ and launch Terminal.
    Now in the menubar you can go to > Help > Terminal Help > About Terminal
    See what it is?

    Mobile Terminal is the same, but for the iPhone, hence "Mobile" Terminal.
    See?!

    Yeah, I was asking if Google didn't work for some reason. :)

    Close, it's an emulator. It emulates some of the functionality but you can't ssh from it, etc.
