I could figure out Linux if I felt like it..

Hey man, All I did was say what was on my mind. It wouldent have gone further if I didnt have to defend myself from your statement. I dont have any issues with Macs. I just dont need it and dont see myself needing it anytime soon.

That new phone does look nice...but that hand looks even nicer.

Also, someone please explain to this technophobe the difference between this set-top-box of theirs, and a cable linking your laptop to the tellyvision.

Well I guess the big difference is that the box can display its self in HD. With a HDMI port. Sadly doesn't seen to be a DVR or any kind. Which makes since cause Apple wants you to buy your TV through them.

Seriously, dream device.

The only thing that could ruin this is if cingular had ridiculous fees. I want to iChat, do email and all the weather/maps crap for free. Surfing the internet I dont mind paying a little bit for, but ONLY a little bit and 1 straight fee (exactly like i do for my ISP).

I just had to. But it's a very nice phone indeed, but it is pricey.
