Locamoda showed the latest version of its technology that allows any mobile phone to be used to interact with applications 'on the street." The phone works as a remote control to communicate with large screens in storefronts, cafes, city streets and other locations. StreetSurfer, for example, creates a scenario in which you walk by a real estate office or kiosk anywhere and use your phone to  browse property information and connect directly to a broker or send a message. Other scenarios include retail shops and travel agencies. It's a cool application of wireless technology and the Web--and another demonstration of  how anytime, anywhere connectivity is upon us.
