TECH| Services on IPOD & ITOUCH for all Guests

This is awesome!

I remember when palm pilots were the thing. You could download a software to turn your palm pilot into a remote control..what fun!

I did try & experiment with sharing the map (first mumbai, then chandigarh) with guests over bluetooth. Conceirge were given a bluetooth enabled handset & printer and guests could sync up.

Runtriz, a software firm out of Hollywood, CA, is aiming to bring hotels up to speed.
