RE: EV-DO

Well. The local yocals aren’t yet aware of any price reduction. I did get the card, but I suppose I’ll need to call corporate to get the new lower rate. 😦

I know exactly what you mean ev-do makes my life and job much easier. I have become a true believer and look forward to seeing the advances in other technologies it brings. And it lifts the boundaries in communciation for those with limited means. I have even been able to place voip phone calls from my phone across the evdo access but it pretty much sounded like a couple of tincans and string.

By the way, Jonathan, I think you convinced me to get EVO. On-demand
full-time Internet didn’t seem really compelling until you and these guys
<http://media.libsyn.com/media/motr/MoTR_32.mp3&gt; pointed out the enabling
effect of it. People like us are constantly thinking of things we need to
get done on the Internet, but usually when we are out of range of our wi-fi
sites. There is a rule of thumb that says, if you can do something in under
two minutes, do it now. That avoids the overhead involved in trying to
remember to do stuff later. There are also times when Internet-Right-Now
would be quite handy in a business sense. I do get questioned about stuff,
including Xpress It, and being able to pull up the answers now would be
advantageous! I’m a Verizon customer, and probably will be until I’m dead so
I qualify. A flat rate of $40/mo. is tough to beat with a ugly stick! 🙂
