    Herself did Desk Top Publishing once upon a time, so we've always had a Mac, and preferably one with a big monitor. She uses two monitors at work! (Not doing DT Publishing anymore, but does a ton of analysis, and stats)...

    So, we kind of have this big old machine because we've always had a big old machine.

    But, it's upstairs...

    I think she needs a Macbook Pro, don't you? :D :D

    There is also a rumor that AT&T will no longer be the sole carrier for the iPhone. Unfortunately I hear that Verizon does not have the capability to carry the iPhone at this time.

    I don't know why they wouldn't? They have a G system. :yes:

    I did hear though that Sprint maybe? is going to carry the iPhone.

    Of course. After I got stuck with AT&T. :sigh:

    Yup! And courtesy of McGraw-Hill's Harold “Terry” McGraw III we now know it REALLY is coming!

    Oops!

    Course we still don't know for sure how much or anything else. :unsure:

    Wouldn't want to be on a conference call with Messrs Jobs and McGraw this morning. :mental:

    NPR's doing live coverage? :unsure:

    That would be a surprise. Apple doesn't usually allow live broadcast coverage. I'll have to check it out.

    Or get it off the live MacWorld web feed here.

    Tom...

    Not sure exactly...on my ride into work the very last piece they did was on the new tablet and the upcoming announcement...then a snippet that said, "You can hear live coverage of the event here on NPR." My assumption is that they will probably just be doing reporting FROM the even, moreso than a streaming thing...

    In the meantime, I'll go have a look at the link you've provided :)
