Despite the wonders that are Macintosh, the iPod, and the iPhone, every once in awhile you get a reality check on what Apple really stands for as a company. Monday was one of those times.
The Palm Pre
Here’s something I never thought I’d be saying: I’m actually excited for a phone made by Palm. Palm hosted a press conference at the Consumer Electronics Show in Las Vegas on Thursday to announce a new mobile phone, which it named the Palm Pre. Prior to the press conference, technology enthusiasts almost unanimously staked the […]
So Google made a big announcement on Monday about the much hyped gPhone, or lack thereof. For what seems like years now, people have been speculating about an ad-supported phone to be given away by Google. Reality turned out to be a little more boring, but much more significant than a free phone. Android The […]
I received a very nice surprise when I opened my Razr phone this morning and saw the little “EV” symbol instead of the usual “1x” one. At some point in the last 12 hours or so, Verizon Wireless silently enabled their BroadbandAccess (EV-DO) network for the Grand Forks area. Word has it that it’s also […]

Momentum has been building for Friday’s launch of Apple’s first mobile phone for months now — something you’ve likely seen if you’ve recently read websites devoted to […]
I may have sounded a bit down on North Dakota in my recent post, but only because I want the best for the state. Having lived in Grand Forks since 1997, I consider North Dakota my adopted home state and, for full disclosure, EduTech (my employer) is funded by the legislature, so I’m a state […]
Verizon Wireless News
I was planning on writing a somewhat negative post about Verizon Wireless last week, but luckily for them, I just didn’t have enough time. Instead, after reading a couple of news items today, they’re back on my “Good List”! Grand Forks, North Dakota, where I live with my wife, is not a high priority for […]
Verizon Wireless – Treo 610!
Gizmodo is reporting that Verizon Wireless is expected to launch the Handspring Treo 610 in the last half of 2004. This is THE phone I’ve been waiting for. Features include: Palm OS software (letting you run Palm-based applications) High resolution color screen Integrated camera Bluetooth wireless connectivity Keyboard Email and web browsing capabilities Expandable via […]
