Death to Cell Phones long live the iPhone (or not)

Firstly, even though this is the first post on this blog it is not the first post of my blog I seem to have misplaced the other blog.

So I have been doing some thinking lately, some about how unreliable my WiFi is and some about how unreliable my cable modem is (which makes my VoIP phone pretty unreliable).

And of course I have been like so many others lusting for an iPhone.

Then I saw this and it all came together:

The day the iPhone turned into a web surfin’ iPod

And I thought about it some more and looked up links to some of what I have been reading listening to.

So if I can get a Fios highspeed from verizon that is more reliable than the Time Warner cable (I Use Direct TV for the TV and DVR) I could get an iPhone and have a nice little device (much more convenient for surfing in bed than a laptop. and it would still be a phone when hooked in to the WiFi.
