iPod Touch, not iPhone, Is What Got My Money. (It’s What I Want.)

I’d been on the fence about an iPhone for weeks.

My Canon video camera stopped working recently. It had a good run, lasting around 6 years, longer than I expect of most electronics with moving parts.

The Latest Object of Desire: iPhone.

I have until June to figure out how I get out of my Verizon Wireless contract. That’s 5 months to plan. In case you’re one of the 54 people who didn’t already know about the iPhone, visit the Apple site.I’ve been at CES all week long where all kinds of amazing technology has been introduced. The only so called “news alert” I received from ABCNews.com about anything technology related was for the iPhone. I noticed people surfing for photos of... + read on
