    Anybody drooling over the new smartphone announced yesterday at CES in Vegas, the Palm Pre?


    Who has Sprint, and are you okay with Sprint?

    Many times have I registered my complaints about Sprint. Many, many times.

    That said, the Pre looks pretty cool. Not giving up my iPhone, tho.

    It's only 400 x 263 pixels... how is that too big?

    The main investor backing Palm is Elevation Partners, of which Bono is a managing partner.

    Oh, jeez, you and IJAG, the damn thing's projected on a wall! There was an easily understandable joke in there. Not a good one, apparently, but an understandable one.

    Dools, I suspect you have a long history of telling people -- women, especially -- that something is bigger than it really is. ;D

    (Oh, that was so wrong. I should be ashamed...)

    I just think it's ugly.

    And to clarify, I'm talking about the phone.
