    No iPhone for Verizon

    Now that the Apple event is over and no announcement was made, the rumors for the Verizon iPhone have been quashed - at least for a few more months. Even the iPad is exclusive through AT&T on the 3G models. No Verizon or CDMA version at all.

    Report downplays lack of 3G iPhone

    Read full article here. A couple of things that I have thought of...1) AT&T pretty much owns the EDGE network and is looking to purchase the remaining shares. 2) I may be totally wrong (correct me if I am) but I don't believe any of the AT&T phones have 3G capabilities. 3) AT&T is the exclusive...

    Broken nano and Invisible Shield experience

    Last night I get into my car and turn on my nano and there is about a third of the screen that isn't showing up - It's just white. The music still played everything still seemed to work other than not being able to see anything on part of the screen. I had an Invisible Shield installed and...

    I got my nano back in October of 2005 and I have been on the hunt for a case since I got it. If you don't care about which cases I have tried and what case I ended up with just go to the bottom of this post. I don't remember when I saw the first nano case in stock but I know it was about a...
