    FacePalm only works over Wifi, which is bizarre when you've had phones in europe able to do video calls since 2006 and you can do it over a data connection with Fring for Android. Multitasking and subsequent tech spec upgrades were required to keep up. Didn't really see much in terms of big software leaps ahead, and didn't see much on what they're doing to incorporate "cloud" services.

    Good stuff though. God I love tech.

    haha facepalm

    Yeah it's not a huge leap, but for someone that's never had an iPhone, much less an iPod (I use the shuffle), I'm out of my mind excited.

    So oves the phone that came with my cell phone plan.

    I need this. I've been good about not having to need all the latest electronics/technology, but this one, I simply NEED. I have the 3GS... Definitely gonna have to drop $200.

    And how much more expensive.

    I'll be one of the last people to buy a smartphone. I don't like being forced to buy data plans.
    "We grow up thinking that beliefs are something to be proud of, but they're really nothing but opinions one refuses to reconsider. Beliefs are easy. The stronger your beliefs are, the less open you are to growth and wisdom, because "strength of belief" is only the intensity with which you resist questioning yourself. As soon as you are proud of a belief, as soon as you think it adds something to who you are, then you've made it a part of your ego."

    I wasn't nuts about having to pay $30/mo for data either, but I'm such a disorganized slob I really needed something to offload my brain into. Hence the iPhone, which is great for me because it can be everything: phone, calendar, music player, GPS, instant access to all human knowledge, etc. So I just have to not lose it and remember to put appointments into it, and I'm golden.

    When I switched to AT&T from Verizon, I asked for a minutes plan that isn't advertised anymore. So we get something like 550 minutes to share between two phones and I added data for my iPhone, all for about $85/mo, which was about $10 less than we had been paying for just minutes to share between two phones at Verizon. We were able to get away with fewer minutes at AT&T because of the rollover thing- we have periods of heavy usage, but much of the time we're not really using them that much.
