I just finished something I thought some of you might be interested in;
a usable serial port for an iPhone/iPad/iTouch.  All iDevices have a
serial port built into the dock connector, but it doesn't do anything
useful out of the box.  All you need is a dock connector, a 470kOhm
resistor, some wire, a soldering iron, a console cable and an RS232 ->
TTL converter.
If you take out the time spent figuring out the correct wiring scheme,
the whole process took about an hour.
