Bonjour on the iPhone!
Ladies and gentleman... Erica Sadun from TUAW has succeeded in getting Bonjour to work on the iPhone. Read about it here.
Holy. Cow. Do I ever need some rest. I just spent most of last night figuring out how to get Bonjour (aka mDNS) running on my iPhone. Bonjour offers configuration-free networking technology. Computers (and iPhones) automagically broadcast their services, which you can then listen for and take advantage of. This has been a long-term project that I've been plugging away at for months.
So what makes this exciting? With Bonjour, your iPhone and touch can talk to your Mac. They can talk to printers or to each other. They can browse for available services or provide their own as a server. What I put together was a pair of applications: PicSend and PicListen. These apps allow you to subscribe to a camera on another person's iPhone. Just tell that iPhone to snap a picture and within seconds that picture appears on your own screen.

Now this is one of the most amazing applications applied to the iphone I have seen yet. I only run PC computers here at my home and personally haven't touched a mac for about 8 years but it looks as though to use the full capability of your iphone you really need a apple computer which is quite disappointing. Sounds as though I'm going to have to get OSX running here..

As for the original topic of this post, WOW. that is GREAT news. It might be a while before its ready for a public release and/or a guide to get it working, but think of the possibilities!! i already type papers and lyrics and things on my phone with text edit and just drag it over with ssh, copy in word, and print and its really convenient, but THIS is a major major development. wow.i LOVE apple.
