"After the first Hello World application, hacker NerveGas and the people at #iPhone-shell have built Apache, Python and other Open Source apps for the iPhone. Yes, your iPhone can now be a Web Server and do all sort of 1337 things. This also means that third-party applications for iPhone will happen no matter what. People, Doom could be just around the corner. [UPDATED 3:07AM EST: As a bonus, check their progress on the iPhone unlocking after the jump.]"

That is so awesome that they've made such huge inroads to unlocking the phone. In the next couple of months we'll have all sorts of cool applications available for download.

I think this is HUGE news. If we can get a local MAMP (MacOSX, Apache, mySQL, PHP) setup going on the iPhone, this means we can get "off-line" apps! No longer would we be chained to having EDGE/WiFi in order to access the Applets we are seeing now.

Of course some stuff wouldn't work well "off-line" such as Seeqpod but Applets like to-do lists would work quite well.

Of course, "native" 3rd-party apps would be optimal, but this is a great middle-ground between the apps we can create now and the native apps we hope to have support for in the future.
