The big problem with a lot of these applications being suggested is it
will require back end servers to store the data.
I'm yet to see anyone suggest "SAAS" pricing models for FIC applications
on a monthly/annual basis or is everyone on this list still thinking
that open source means free.

Richard, nice idea.The upload back to home looks like a necessary
BTW Speaking about _useful_ solutions, I'd like to see user-submitted
map of speed cameras.
Like when the phone is in car-cradle, then half of the screen transforms
in one big button. You see a camera, you tap on screen. When the car is
waiting on red light, the phone uploads data to a server and downloads
updated and processed information about cameras locations.
Next time you're approaching a camera, the phone will play alarm sound.
But what's important for new phone popularity, is teenagers market, so
the more bells and whistles, the better. "Cool" factor.

I'm definitely looking forward to something like this. What I'd
useful is something which uploads the GPS traces to my home
database, then makes that data available to other sources
1) So I can select an area downtown, and see my most (or least)
favourite places or travelled routes through it for the time
2) If I'm going to a planned meeting with a Neo-Owning-Friend
the Neo could check my agenda and automatically enable
Location-Sharing until we find each other.
Actually, as there are a bunch of GPS Google API mashups out
already - if the Neo can run Google Maps then it will be quite

home/openstreetmap/etc), quering home machine DB, all into the
