    Wait till you discover the wonderful world of apps for smartphones. iphone apps tend to cost more. But you can access bank, insurance, Triple AAA, Walmart, Redbox, Netflix, GPS navigation, hell just about anything from your phone.

    I'm an android man myself. HTC Thunderbolt, and eyeing the new Samsung Galaxy Note II.

    Awesome...the Androids look cool but I wanted something dummy-proof. I'm sure for a techie like you it's probably the way to go, but I have fat fingers. Will definitely be using the bank and GPS apps, though I read something about Apple Maps being really sucky. It seems to work fine so far.

    Android's dummy-proof as well. Cheaper too. You must be rolling in dough.



    Snail mail, hate it, mostly because the USPS delivers 99% junk mail, 149% on the run up to an election. Oddly, even given that, they're just about bankrupt, government.

    Technology is broken and impractical.

    It's not designed to work - in fact it's designed to not work, and therefore re-marketable.

    The price you pay to be on the bleeding edge.

    Exactly.

    Technology - in terms of consumer technology is designed to be impractical. $#@! doesn't work the way it used to and when they do work, it gets quickly changed or replaced with new stuff - requiring consumers to keep paying to keep up with it.

    No thanks, I decided to stay out of that trap a long time ago.
