Oh, well, now I just understand your point of view! Sorry, I thought
you only wanted to locate your Neo... Yeah, of course then such a
kind of software is really senseful. But why not scanning for the
laptop (the mac-address of the bt-chip, especially) and then deciding
of forwarding or accepting the call?

VoIP-software is plattform independent, so an independent, open-source
application for managing the Neo would be great, maybe based on Java?
This application could be used for managing contacts and settings (
profiles) and everything else. What do you think of this?
It could be called Neo-Control-Center, or whatever, but it'd offer
a basis for all users. (I think the Neo should be shipped with a kind of
software, so users don't have to set-up many things on their pcs when
buying the phone. Of course many plugins for other applications
are great, but when I get a new phone, I want to use it by now,
and I don't want to spend hours for installing applications supporting
the phone. Later on, there is much time for doing so, but not
when I want to play with my phone :) )
