Forget the politics though, what I am interested in are really practical uses for an iPhone which might actually change my life. And now I think I just might have found one, in Malibu.
Well, at the Malibu Beach Inn to be precise, the first hotel to provide an iPhone powered stay for every guest.
Guests checking into the hotel are asked if they own an iPhone, and if they do not they are loaned one (or at least an iTouch) for the duration of their stay.
The reason? So the guest can make full use of the Hotel Evolution application that the Malibu Beach Inn is debuting.
This inspiring application pretty much takes care of everything the discerning guest could want, apart from acting as a door key. Just enter you room number and security code, and the iPhone becomes a handheld guest information and services hub.
So what exactly does the iPhone Hotel offer courtesy of the Jesus Phone in your pocket? More details on page 2...
