    Many developers have written games, utilities, transfer programs, and many other tools. Now, Apple has gone to War. As you can see, an iPhone/iTouch is securely and protectively fastened to the side of that M10, which is the replacement for the M24 sniper Rifle used by our armed forces.
    This tricky bit of cross technology allows for the shooter to have your standard ballistics app which allows users to set firearm and ammunition profiles, then use this profile and enter info such as distance, wind direction, elevation and temperature. Essentially you have a sort of digital “Spotter” for that “One shot-one kill” capability. Created by Runaway Technology, Inc., the app is titled Bullet Flight, an external ballistics calculator for the iPod Touch and iPhone. Which in the hands of a trained sniper could make that one shot always dead on.
    The app is a bit costly on the app store at $11.99, but can you really put a price tag on keeping American lives safe?

    Heh, it's not apple that goes to war, it's just an app that's been developed by a third party. Now soldiers could also listen to music whilst shooting enemies, ha ha ha.

    That is a pretty cool way to use your Iphone Lol. Does anyone know if the army is actually experimenting with this or is it just being used by private gun owners?

    Heh - that's quite cool. A little random, perhaps, and I'm not sure if it will ever actually be used, but pretty cool nonetheless :).
