    What he said. Also, it amazes the fuck out of my one-year-old so I have a guaranteed half hour of silence at some point every afternoon when I hand it to him. He calls random people, but that's fine. I have unlimited minutes.

    When I visit my nephews (7 and 4), the first thing they do is go for my phone to play Angry Birds or Bubble Mania or....anything that's on there. Doesn't matter. And I let them play until the battery is dead. Greatest babysitter ever.

    And, I'm sure dooley was making a reference to something else, but if anyone really does pay for porn, well....that's dumb.

    I'm glad I have one, but the novelty has worn off, for the most part.

    I like the Atlantic Wire app, the Rotten Tomatoes app, the IMDB app, the CBS Sports fantasy baseball app in the summer to check my team (strangely, no equivalent basketball app), the MLB app during the summer to check scores, the Twitter and Facebook apps. Oh, and photos. But the camera is really slow compared to a real camera. It works OK for posed adults, but not posed children who wiggle a lot.

    And that about does it for me. I'm not a video game player.

    Then the camera on your phone sucks. My phone camera pummels every other regular camera I have. Not even close.

    Maybe I'm using it wrong.
