Getting Closer


Are you sitting down?  I have a shocking declaration to make.  I have never owned a cellular phone.

As unbelievable as that sounds, it's true.  I love gadgets and technology and all that, but I've never been interested in owning a cell phone.  I always felt if I was going to own a portable communications tool of that nature, it would have to be so much more than simply a phone.  For one, it would have to store and play MP3s.  According to this Nokia press release, we're getting closer.

The Nokia N91 has an integrated 4GB hard drive and standard headphone jack.  You essentially treat this phone like a decent sized MP3 player.  They do exactly what they should do, they give you the space and let you transfer your own MP3s over without forcing some stupid DRM crapology down our collective throats.  We're definitely getting closer, but we're not quite there yet.  It needs to be a PDA and offer remote desktop connectivity too.  Then I'll consider getting in the game.
