The rising popularity of wireless devices opens exciting
possibilities for users to share their resources. However, there
exists no end-to-end, general-purpose, resource sharing
framework for such devices. Existing resource sharing solutions
address only part of the overall challenge and barely consider
mobile wireless devices' critical characteristics, such as mobility,
CPU capability, and power limitations. Furthermore, they do not
have mechanisms to control the degree to which resources are
shared. This lack of control likely leads to over-usage of shared
resources, therefore, reducing computing capacity and draining
the batteries of devices that are sharing resources. In this paper,
we present Friend Relay, a resource-sharing framework for mobile
