 I want to turn on two different lights using my Android.
Q: How would you do it?

Bluetooth: AFAIK, BT only supports one (1) channel, this won't work
because the user could be on a call at the same time as I need the
channel.

USB: Host mode isn't coming soon, and I can't use a hack. (I hope to
sell this as an accessory product). I need 2-lights, so just turning
on/off the USB 5v won't work...

WIFI: This seems best, Does anyone agree?? Since it already works on
most models. How to do it cheaply.

Speaker: One guy did DTMF over the speaker to run his robot. But, it
won't work like a cradle or wireless...

IRDA: I thought of making a USB to IRDA dongle, but that would
interfere with any cradle.


Am I missing something? I realize the "intent" of Android is to get-2-
the-internet, but Palm had success by promoting attachments like
these, and I hope Android will too....

2. Pulling specific information from XML files quickly

I have 50 XML files located on a remote server, one formatted for
each state. I am able to read each of the 50 files by selecting a
state from a spinner and using a SAX parser but I cannot seem to find
out how to pull out information from each file by city. I have tried
unsuccessfully to pass a city variable to the characters method of the
Handler.
   Each state has thousands of records and I am looking for a way to
speed up the search since reading the entire file for a state takes
several minutes. I used SAX since it was supposed to be the fastest
way to read but it limits me in selecting specific information. If I
understand things correctly I could use a DOM parser to find my state
and city specific data but that would make retrieval even slower. Any
suggestions would be appreciated.
