Gates, Jobs, McNealy, etc. etc.

It was good to wake up laughing today -- news that a handheld phone was being released with a Windows operating system made me think that just as we get rid of the telephone solicitation scourge here in the U.S., we will be opening opportunities for viruses to call everybody in our cellphone's directory... argh, and with all the junk numbers I compulsively keep in my phone from all my travels, that would be a very expensive virus.

I'm waiting for an all-in-one integrated wearable CDMA2000 EV-DO/EDGSM/CDPD/WiFi phone, GPS and PDA iPOD. But for now I still have my trusty 1997 Newton, which does just fine thanks - it's fully capable of doing most of the above. It's just such a brick.
