The iPhone Hotel
Fashionfunky writes up The Malibu Beach inn which is iPhone-friendly. Guests can check in with their own iPhone or iPod, if not the hotel obliges by equipping them with a 16 gig iPod touch with a pre-installed an app called Hotel Evolution.
Guests punch in room number plus security code for access to hotel services: order room service, set a wake up call, request dry cleaning, extra blankets or replace forgotten toothbrushes, check your messages or set your room to do Not Disturb.
Shopping, eating and cavorting info for the area is on tap, too. Cost to the hotel is about $10 per room.
