Default Rice breakthrough could double wireless capacity

I'm ready! Bring it on. I think it's great that they figure all this out then just hand it to others to work with.

I don't even have one G phone, not to mention a four G phone. One of these days I'll get a fancy one with all kinds of apps on it, as well as a half decent camera.

Only reason I've got one is because my boss makes me carry one so they can get ahold of me at midnight if the servers go down.

But it is kind of nice being able to check email when I'm not at home.

At least you don't have to go searching for a G spot - or four G spots.

How about an app that tells you if she is interested? Not that I'd pursue that line of interest, but nonetheless, it would be fun.

So you don't have a cell phone at all?

Yeah, I do have a cell, but it's from the stone ages (not a smart one...)

Once I make my fortune from a stock I'm in I guarantee that will be one of the first things I'll get - the latest and greatest phone.
