Hi Steve,

I go in for my final interview today for a job as a Genius at one of  
the local Apple Stores so if they offer any sort of discount, there  
WILL be an iphone in my future.  Lately been using an OS X app called  
Packetograph by Sergei - KD6CJI.  It's new and had a few bugs -  
nothing too bad.  Its a great app for aprs, better in many ways than  
xaistr (sp) due to it's simplicity.  I'm not sure what you were  
thinking of developing for the phone assuming the SDK rumor holds  
true, but something like this would be very cool.  I wonder if he  
would release the source code for porting to the iphone!
