[AG-TECH] AG on the iPhone, anyone?

Yes, I was very disappointed not to be able to make it to the retreat -- 
but it would have been on
my own time and money, sadly, and it did not work out given my current 
job transition.

In my previous message, I was focussed on the iPhone due to its 
announcement today -- but
the Nokia and openmoko devices remain of interest in this regard (in 
some respects, the Nokia
might even be a better platform), and of course android is yet to really 
hit the streets.

I hope we can find time to discuss the telephony bridge that we have 
chatted about, too.  I still
think that would be a great addition to the AG environment.  I hope to 
keep a hand in this game
until circumstances allow me to get back into a more active role.  All 
the best to the folks at

Cheers, Rick
