Legal Well. Raise your hands if you didn't see this one coming. Nobody is safe from Apple's and Microsoft's legal crusade against Android, not even Samsung, which supplies a lot of chips to Apple. Apple has sued Samsung for copying Cupertino's look and feel in various Samsung devices. This is about as surprising as the tides rolling in. Update: And Samsung's going to strike back. Hit 'm hard, Samsung. I don't like you anymore than any of these other patent trolls, but maybe we'll finally see it all crash and burn.

And it is actually uplifting not to be "reachable" all the time.

You know, just because the cell phone rings ... doesn't mean you have to answer it. ;) Same for text messages. ;)

I've had a cell phone for 10 years now, and it is very much a tool for *my* communications needs (as in outgoing), and not a tool for others to constantly nag me (incoming). ;)

It's all about perspective, and not letting our tools enslave us.

And for that reason (having connectivity and power for *my* uses) I can't wait for a good hardware-keyboard Android phone to come to Canada.
