i've had a blackberry for about a year (7230) and liked it's use a lot...A LOT.  the email, calendaring, battery life (i could go about a week and a half without charging), etc. was perfect.  only thing that wasn't...the style/size.  after a while i started using the email a little less so the keyboard wasn't much of a draw anymore...

so, i looked at the new smaller blackberry...but the loss of the full keyboard made me think back to my smartphone roots (i had the mpx200 and hated it)...low and behold the audiovox 5600 was out (pic below).  this phone is awesome and everything i need (oh yeah, bluetooth enables it as a gprs modem (250K).

wishes for this phone: better battery life when bluetooth in use; auto on/off features.

ccia chief get's nearly half of the recent settlement from microsoft.  what sounds like a community property divorce settlement seems to be true based on other reports.

this is appalling that a single individual would get the benefit of that settlement as a “bonus” for his efforts...sounds like corporate crap to me.  knowing that he may get portions of this settlement wouldn't you think that introduces an incredible conflict of interest over the settlement discussions?
