Maybe they'll add Bluetooth connectivity soon. There seems to be little reason to use the Internet and a 'cloud,' with the two iPhones mere inches apart.

My guess as to why they would have it go to a cloud is so that the other devices that they are planning can be compatible with each other.

I have a sneaky suspicion they use timing and maybe location data to figure out just who is bumping in order to match you up.

That would be a nightmare and a possible security issue. Their solution sounds like it avoids all the issues of blue tooth, IR, etc...

I'd rather "bump" someone I may not know too well than "squirt" them any day!

I liked the app. I think it will revolutionize the way we exchange information.

Someday P2P will be exchanged simply by bumping into each other.

or maybe two phone can have virtue sex simply by bumping into each other. LOL. Now that's classic! ;D
