    Is anyone else marvelling over how fast this stuff is changing? Three years ago this forum was all about the palm and the possibility of UMPC's. Two years ago, maybe last year too, netbooks were it and every fool who couldn't bear to do actual work (at my facility) was bringing one to work. Now the laptops are banned and we have just about nothing but smartphones, until this spring when the ipad made everybody go bananas.

    What's it gonna be next? 'Cause I'm sure not keeping up with it by buying it all... just sorta watching it go by. All the crap I bought can now be found bundled together on a smartphone, but all the crap I bought still works so I'm keeping my money.

    Yea, I ended up getting 32g on the iTouch. The new 3rd generation iTouch only has 8g, 32g, or 64g. There's no in between now.

    It would have been nice to just get the iPhone if they had service with another provider besides AT&T. Im not a fan of their service coverage at all. Compared to Sprint and Verizon, they just dont offer service good enough for me. Id become very frustrated very quickly.
    Did you know verizon has iPhone now? Since February.

    I too am an iPhone junkie. I disable the phone at work, or turn off ringer, and have yet had no prob;ems as I am sure not to abuse at work. Last year they really started cracking down on cell phone use, and I went directly to my manager, showed her what I use and why, with the understanding that I would most certainly not be abusing it. I have received nothing but positive feedback, and I believe it is because I was forthcoming. In fact, one of our educators has sought ME out to pick my brain about what to use. Since our facility subscribes to micromedex, and the download is free thru our facility, it has actually proven my case.... My "go to" apps: micromedex (free), epocrates (paid), Medscape (free), Davis' drug guide (paid), Pedi-safe (paid), acls and pals advisor (paid). I have yet to have a complaint, but as I said, I am SURE not to abuse...

    Verizon now offers iphones
    Of course, they started doing that AFTER I got my droid. I didn't want to leave Verizon just for the iphone so I got the droid.
