iPhone serial port hack may be useful for network engineers

Computerworld ("The Voice of IT Management!") posts about the iPhone serial port hack, which apparently enables network engineers to use their iPhones in server rooms instead of laptops or terminals. The magazine posted a HOWTO with images. I like the basketball in the corner. From Computerworld:
According to Chris Pollock at io Networks: "the real benefit in all of this is that there are so many console packages for iPhone in Cydia now that you can have a fully functional computer, as useful as a linux box, but without carrying around a laptop".
