    This doesn't surprise me, I'm sure almost any linux command line applications will work on the iPhone with a bit of hacking.

    If you want a greener way of downloading then watts per hour is gonna be a whole lot less then using your pc, but novel still

    Hmmm, quite useless at the moment...but:

    For me the next thing isn't "web2.0", i don't want to share my pictures and diary with the world, thank you.
    For me the next big thing is "Internet Anywhere".

    Once you get a flatrate and acceptable speed out of your mobile devive (beeing an Iphone or whatever else), could you not save your home line?

    Same thing happened to the phone, mobile calling has gotten so cheap, you don't need a landline anymore (except for internet)

    It's good what this guy has done, but better is using Clutch through Safari to manage your torrents.

    Sure, but that doesn't stop it being pointless.

    As koola points out, WebUIs to existing torrent programs are a much better and more practical thing to do. But then again, a lot of the Linux-lovers do things like this just to say they did :)

    "Your recently downloaded file has taken up 12.5% of your total diskspace. More memory required. What would you like to do?"

    ^ It's an apple. So you're fu-du-cked!

    And more over, this seems very useless to me.

    Rather I use my laptop and Wifi signal than an Iphone.

    BTW, I hate apple.

    one thing where it does become practical is in being used to push smaller files (media especially) to mobiles, as long as there are some dedicated seeding servers.

    the more people get that file, the faster the download becomes.
