  1. @MDN – “Uh, Michael, that was three questions.”

    That’s the value of the Gartenberg analysis. 3 questions, with 3 answers each for the price of one. Quit looking a gift horse in the mouth.

  2. I have a iPod touch and then a cheap clam shell Nokia cell phone. Until T-Mobile gets the iPhone it will stay this way. Even after that, I would probably just keep the touch in my vehicle or give my daughter the touch and take back my old black iPod for the car.
