Speaking of ML on iPhones and Blackberries, I created the following Mix
idea:

Title: Create an iPhone Application or an iPhone optimized version of My
Oracle Support (formerly Metalink)

Feel free to vote for it if you like.

Also, check out Chris Warticki's post:

Chris is a Sr. Customer Support Manager at Oracle.

Here is what the Oracle Blogosphere is saying about MetaLink vs. My Oracle

PS: MOS is not that bad.
