Technology keeps advancing

I use t-mobile and I'm pretty satisfied. It's available in the US as well. By connecting to a PC, photos are downloaded by USB cable by a program called "PC Companion". The whole thing couldn't be easier. The best technology is, IMHO, the easiest technology.

iphones are more of a necessity than a luxury. Who wants to carry their PC with them all over the place? They serve the same purpose that cellular phones, mobitels and beepers once did - they allow the freedom of movement while being technically available to friends, family and clients. It seems the whole world needs the internet for a quick weather update, email check, currency exchange info and more. With Facebook on your smart phone, what could be easier than snapping a photo and posting it immediately to your wall or sending it to an interested party (like a Grandma, for example).

      Me too - the Apple is supposed to be slightly more user friendly, especially for game options, and the Android is great for more practical things. But to me, it's all great - I don't leave home without my iphone. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

      Today I downloaded the Skype application. I am hoping it will make a difference in my monthly bill. Just use your browser to find Skype and hit download. I will write more next month on the result.

      Good, hope some of these will ring your bell, so to speak. I want to try the ringtones one, and the flashlight, myself.
