@darknessangel I too would like to see some wireless sharing standard (maybe called Near-Fi) that would allow devices to talk to each other. We've got Wi-Fi, Bluetooth, and Infrared protocols, but these all have their limitations for this function. What I'd like to see is a kind of "push-fi" where you could push content to another mobile device--whether its a coupon in a grocery store, an ebook of home listings (imagine your checkout lady at the grocery store asking you if you'd like to accept a home directory ebook download to your mobile device for a dollar off of your bill, for example), or just peer-to-peer file sharing. It would have to be simple like 1) you push 2) person confirms or denies the acceptance of your push.
