The Anticipated 'Laptop in the Kitchen'
Everyone in the local search biz has said something like, "Once there's a laptop in the kitchen, then . . ." (fill in the blank with your own traditional media doomsday scenario). Most people don't know how to set up wireless networks and don't have laptops in the kitchen. But they've got phones . . .
Here's a phone (targeted toward the hotel industry) that would offer touch-screen local search (from Commoca). It's not yet widely available, but it's got a certain practical (and sex) appeal.
Let your fingers do the . . . touch-screening?
