I really would love and iPhone BUT...
because they exclusively sell them with AT&T service, I will opt out. About 4 years ago, I had a nasty experience with AT&T, which they never recovered the cost of just $50 for which was clearly something they promoted in a plan so you could try their service. There were so many charges for roaming by that faulty phone and there was no way to turn it off. After 20 or so calls to customer service, and their adamant attitude not to help, I vowed not to ever use their service again. Even when they merged with Cingular, I would not budge. That was 4 years ago.
I just read this article in the NY Times, which confirms my beliefs about this nasty corporation sticking it to their customers again, "Fun, Tours and a $3,000 Bill for Hardly using an iPhone." What a nightmare! I really feel for these people. AT&T won't change, but as consumers, you have the power to not use their service. I was really disappointed that Apple would be linked to this company. Hopefully, in 6 months, they'll offer the iPhone with other carriers, just like the Blackberry Pearl and T-Mobile. Or there are rumors that Apple will try to bid on some wireless bandwidth. I'm holding out for Google's phone.
I read another horrible story about studies showing that implanted chips causing tumors in dogs or lab animals. Read it here.
Last, I'm LOVING Google Reader. It's not just an app I've used for a week. I've used it for a month now. I really like getting my articles on my mobile phone.
