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:
