Is there any shape they WON'T make a USB hub in? No - come to think of it, I really don't need to have that question answered!

I'm not certain that e-Ink is an absolute requirement, but I do think a decent level of resolution IS a requirement.. I do, however, think that Judie makes an excellent point - in North America, we tend to forget that folk don't all have access to the same resources worldwide. At least we forget that until it involves a device or service that isn't available here!

I think it's making me more likely to buy a Kindle2.

I think you are probably right - it's still kind of sad, though.

When I moved about 2+ years ago, I totally gave up having a land line. No AT&T, no Vonage, nothing. I have been quite satisfied to be a cell-only customer. The only reason I can think to stay with a land line is for alarm service, or other location-dedicated service.

I know a lot of people who have made the move from traditional service to Vonage without understanding the new issues associated with depending on your Internet connection for voice service. It seems, in general, people love it or hate it but the overall success of their transition depends more on the quality of their Internet connection than it does on who their voice provider is. That said, I'm generally inclined to recommend going with a lower-cost carrier like Ooma. Now I'm really interested to hear how it works out for you!

This is unfortunate. I wonder if it's the potential for a lawsuit or the potential for SiriusXM to go into bankruptcy?

Linux isn't the only possibility - it should also be able to run Windows CE/WIndows Mobile. I'm not sure I'd personally go through the hoops for that, but I suspect someone will since that OS also runs on ARM chips.

Okay,

Further clarification.

It appears there really are 2 versions of the Touch HD out there:

T8282 - Europe/Asia: 900/2100 MHz
T8285 - Australia (only Telstra) / US (Most Networks) : 850/2100 Mhz

So that would explain why Mitchell's unit supported the 850 UMTS band. So U.S. buyers should look for the T8285!

Is there still much interest in the Shift now that netbook pricing is so low? At $900-$1000 USD (on eBay) It seems a bit overpriced these days, doesn't it?

But, of course, this assumes that I can even get the car into the garage in the first place! Really, though, for $12 it seems to be a really good deal!
