Can The iPhone Bring Parking Nirvana?

OK, we know the JesusPhone can do almost anything, but can it solve the age-old problem of finding a parking spot? Well, at least in NYC, it may be able to: PrimoSpot is a new service/app for the iPhone that tells you, based on where you are, what kind of parking is around you.

While it's not for every space on the street (like San Francisco's upcoming system), it does have the major advantage of showing you all nearby parking options, and if they will be free or reduced prices, and how long until that happens. They also show recommendation types for short stays, and more. Right now, just in some parts of NYC, but PrimoSpot is set to expand to Boston and...Hoboken?...soon.
