>> We decided to show you what we built. We call it the Mobile News Network. Local news from trusted sources is really important. Here you can add all the locations you want. But the great thing about the iPhone is it always knows where you are. And so I've used location APIs to automatically retrieve local news from seven sources here in the Bay Area. All the content is stored and cached, and seamlessly updated in the background, so you can stay up to date even if you're out of network, like on a plane or a subway. In addition to local news, you can also read top sports, business, technology, and entertainment news. We love how we can showcase our award winning photography on the iPhone's high res screen. I mean look at that, isn't that amazing? Look for the Mobile News Network [inaudible] when it launches. It'll be a free download. And stay tuned, we're already working on more exciting ideas. Thank you. [ applause ]
