iPhone 'Personal Data Center' Debuts in US

FreeBit has created [email protected], an app that turns the Apple iPhone into a web server. It has now been launched in the iPhone app center in the U.S., and is being touted as a "Personal Data Center."

Back in February we noted the appearance of a new application from a Japanese company called FreeBit that turns the Apple iPhone into a web server. The company's [email protected] app has just been launched in the iPhone app center in the U.S., and is being touted as a "Personal Data Center" that can be created in just 5 minutes. The app allows you to use your iPhone for storage and sharing files and links. Here's a brief video from FreeBit that reviews how it works:

We'll recap our snarky commentary from the app's debut; "We congratulate FreeBit for making it easier for sysadmins to lose their web server in a cab. Here’s the big question: if your iPhone battery runs down, will there be an iFlywheel and iGenerator to keep your server online?"
