  1. My smartphone has tethering (can become its own wifi hotspot), which is suuuuper convenient when I need it… but, drains battery, so I still hit Starbucks for wifi, a lot.

  2. See there are virtues to being a packrat. You never know when you might need certain things.

    Amen, brother. I’m always astounded whenever I read a product review (usually negative) and the reviewer pans the product after a short period of use and expresses frustration because they can’t return it since they threw out the packaging it came in. (You couldn’t even keep the packaging around long enough to let the merchant return period expire—which is usually thirty days?!)

    From a sociological point of view, I see it as another example of the throwaway society. (And yet, I’m willing to guess that these are some of the same people who religiously bring their own bags to stores and bemoan the disposable-society concept themselves.)

  3. sometimes Apple products have wireless issues with connecting. we recently changed from dsl to cable modem, and my girlfriend and her niece get their connections dropped often on their iphones and ipads. my windows laptop has no droppages. you should mention this at the apple store,.

  4. Dan, rather than just using a thumbdrive to back up your writing, consider using It’s free.

  5. Dan,

    I had trouble with wireless hook-ups being slow and erratic in various apartments I rented. I finally broke down and bought the $180 Apple device and it has been Utopia for me ever since.

    Recently, old friends stayed with us and they had their iPhones and iPad with them. We put them in as guests and the four of us surfed and piddled with no complaints. I have cable and never a problem save electricity disruption.

    My AirPort Extreme Base Station is going on three years of solid use and I wouldn’t give a second thought to buying another one, if the need arose.
