I just signed up for Clear WiMax service here in Atlanta and get unlimited home internet *and* unlimited mobile for $55 a month for life. In addition to purchasing the home and usb modems, I picked up their ClearSpot box which let's me create a WiFi hotspot for up to 8 devices . This service will kill the cellcos once it goes nationwide imho.
May 21st 2009 5:53PM Yeah, you're exactly right Bouillestfu...the Equipment Manager is especially worthless for druids. I want my gear sets to swap automatically for each form and not have to press a button to do it, particularly in raids. EPIC FAIL Blizz.

Jan 9th 2009 2:30PM Um...power users that don't have $150 a month on a cell phone bill for a decent amount of minutes, data, and text messages. I've spent *half" the cost using the iPhone (EDGE) on T-mobile than I would be paying with at&t for the same service (1000 minute/unlimited data/text)

Oct 21st 2008 6:39PM Yeah, the new MacBook screens really blow. They're definitely much brighter than the old MacBooks due to the LED backlight, but me thinks that the brightness just shows off the inferiority and lack of color saturation of the 13" LCD panels that Apple is using. Coupled with the double glare of glossy screen+glass and severely limited viewing angles, it would be hard to swallow shelling out $1300 (or $1600) buckaroos for this baby.
May 7th 2008 3:46PM This bosters my theory that the 3G phone will be unlocked worldwide and that Apple will work with carriers to provide iPhone plans & subsidies, as well as specific rights to carry and sell the iPhone. Revenue sharing *may* be dead folks--look at the poor iPhone sales in Europe. People there just don't want to get locked into a contract or deal with a phone that locks them to a specific carrier.
Here in the U.S., at&t might still be the "exclusive" carrier for sales and offer the rumored $200 subsidy if you sign up for a 2-year contract (through iTunes of course) but you can buy an unlocked 3G iPhone at any Apple Store and take it to any carrier or county of your choice.
This way Apple deals with both the twin problems of the cat & mouse unlocking game (and resultant warranty nightmare and bad PR) as well as the limits on sales due to exclusive carrier agreements. In the end, Apple might end up looking more like typical phone manufacturers such as Nokia and HTC.
Jan 21st 2008 2:58PM p.s. I own both an iPhone and MacBook, so don't bash me as a hater ;p
Jan 21st 2008 2:52PM Hmm... Microsoft didn't charge me anything to upgrade my Zune 30GB to the newest firmware/features to make it equivalent to their latest Zune players. I just don't see the legal *or* marketing logic here from Apple's point of view.
Jan 11th 2008 2:19PM I need one of those Alienware curved monitors--will they fit in the swag bag? ;)
