iPhones to Double as Social Networks and Triple as Walkie-Talkies

It looks like the iPhone, already a kind of digital swiss army knife, will someday have walkie-talkie capabilities and be able to serve as a kind of spontaneous hub where information can be sent automatically to everyone in the group. Patents dating as late as last November, but only unearthed this week, describe the new functions.

The patent used a concert as an example. The perfect way to enjoy live music: having a group of five or six people talk and text at you continuously from various positions across the room.
