Editorial Most of us here like gadgets. Things with displays, LEDs, or stuff that otherwise lights up in the dark and makes cool noises. There is this one gadget I had been waiting for to come out in The Netherlands for quite a while now, but at some point a limit was reached, and today I decided to do a complete 180 and buy a competing product.

Exclusive deals suck!

Why any phone company would lock themselves into the customer base of a single cell service provider is beyond me. Just release a damned GSM version already!!

There's no way that Bell Canada paid Palm enough to make up for the loss of all the Rogers customers. By the time the 6-month exclusivity deal is up, no one on Rogers will want one.

There are a lot of people in my neck of the woods that were chomping at the bit for a Pre on Rogers. Now ... not so much. In a few months when there's a possibility of it coming to Rogers ... probably not enough to make it worth it.
