    I don't have an iphone, so I'll just post whatever I want.

    My blackberry is smart. I'm a big fan of maps, and blackberry maps is very cool.

    The invisible dog fence guys all use blackberries with special dog fence software. A goldmine for RIM.

    I have little use for dog fence software.

    Verizon has been very good to me. It's the network.

    It probably won't make you feel any better, but, to commiserate with you, I live with this guy http://cfa-www.harvard.edu/Walsworth/Group/Ron/Ron.html. Just for fun, the rest of you can google his name and the term 'stored light'.

    My cell phone takes pictures! I don't know how to download them out of my cell phone of course, but it does take them!

    There's the wonderful knitting blogger known as the Yarn Harlot. She once saw Greg Kinnear in an airport. She wanted to take a picture of him but didn't want to go through the whole annoying fan routine so she surreptiously snapped him on her cell. She then decided this activity should have a name, so, in honor of her first subject, to kinnear (verb) using your cell phone to snap a quick picture of someone, usually a celebrity, without their knowledge. I think it's a great term.

    Here it is in a sentence. Instead of staring at Fabio, I should have kinneared him.

    Kudos to Ron. Not only is that an impressive CV, but that's clearly a Mac sitting on his desk.

    He's Mac and I'm PC. (It's all because of statistical software, particularly SAS. Maybe you can run SAS on Macs now but for a long time you couldn't.)

    So he's obviously been brainwashed then?

    In a drunken state of false bravado, I ventured over to the PP board and got sucked into an argument about racism or HIV or statistics, I don't even know what I'm arguing about anymore.

    Don't Go There! It's a Trap!

    I've gotten sucked in there a few times myself...

    Just read the thread Fish, sigh, I'm a statistician at my day job. Correlation, by itself, NEVER proves causation. I don't know if it's still true but throughout the 1980s, 'original' NFL teams (not former AFL or expansion teams) winning the Super Bowl was highly correlated with stock market performance over the year. I think if the two variables you used were 'original team' and 'stock market finishes up for the year' the correlation coefficient was 1. I knew some stockbrokers who picked who to root for in the Super Bowl based on this fact. Sigh again.

    I almost posted in that thread but then I resisted.

    Well, until the 'soft went to a lamer naming convention, there did actually used to be a phone operating system known as Windows Mobile Smartphone, not to be confused with Windows Mobile Pocket PC Phone. They're now Windows Mobile Standard and Windows Mobile Professional, respectively. (With Windows Mobile Classic the OS for non-phone Pocket PCs.) But to answer your question, I guess I'd say, if you need a data plan for your phone to take advantage of all its features, it's a "smartphone."

    I went with a "Standard" version (the Pantech Duo); Mr. DA with the Pro (touch-screen) version (HP iPAQ 910). We're both happy with our choices.

    Let's see, I get my work mail account pushed to me on demand, it also syncs my calendar and contacts through Activesync. I also have Hotmail pushed to me on demand, and have WL instant messenger. I have a third e-mail account on the phone too, and could add a few more, but I don't get much mail on other accounts.

    My must-have apps include SmartPhlow, a traffic map specific to the Seattle area; Audible for my audiobooks (until Zune gets it butt in gear on this front); Voice Command (push a button, and say, "Call [contact name]" and it dials, or "play U2" and my mp3's start to play on Windows Media Player); and my list of mobile web site favorites. On this new phone, I can switch to landscape view, which makes reading DBR forums much easier. Basically, it has enough stuff to keep me from otherwise wanting to take a laptop on short trips. (I get twitchy without connectivity for extended periods of time.)

    Mr. DA's phone also has wi-fi and GPS, so he gets fun mapping capabilities. Some third parties (SPB stands out as a top contributor) have also made more apps for his version, including some pretty swanky homescreens w/ better-than-iPhone functionality/navigation.
