Operating from 2007 to 2009, the lightpole.net domain name hosted the website of the San Francisco based LightPole mobile phone application service.
LightPole's content publishing system and Java-based client let users find information about nearby restaurants, events and shops. The software was a kind of translation service whereby LightPole's customers put a Java-based widget on a web site. Users clicked on the widget, which looked like a mobile phone, so that they could load a mobile version of that site's services onto their mobile phone. Users typed in their phone numbers, entered confirmation codes and downloaded the application.
