After some test runs, the software company Runtriz has released the Hotel Evolution. Check into a place that features them, like the Malibu Beach Inn, and the staff will load the application on your iPhone or iPod touch or lend you a unit for your stay. Your room number is the password. Get your suit dry cleaned, arrange for a wake-up call, order room service, or call for extra shampoo.
