    Hey guys. I am receiving my very first touch phone and my very first smart phone all wrapped up in a single wonderful and miraculous package.

    The funny part is, I was complaining about my "old" phone (which I bought only a month ago); begging for my carrier to replace it with something better. The rep I was speaking to threw out this "mytouch" phone casually, as though he didn't think it would really satisfy me.

    I liked the features and I liked the pricetag ($50!) and I liked the color. When I got home and did a little research, Lo and Behold did I discover that this phone was released to the public only a few days ago. Not only is it Brand Spankin' New, but it has a feature set that I am drooling over. I can hardly wait to begin playing around with this sexy, sexy gadget. I have been a fan of smartphones for a long time, and I was leaning towards purchasing an Iphone eventually...

    However, I get an ugly feeling in my stomach whenever I think about giving money to Apple, a company that:

    • overuses proprietary software/hardware
    • doesn't seem to value the time or money of its customers
    • maintains a vice-like grip over the development of it's operating system
    • cripples the creative potential of any of its technologically inclined users
    • imposes needless restraints on its products, locking them down tight and infuriating the true techies
    So android is the OS for me. Now I find that this MyTouch Slide has a standard Headphone jack, SD cardslot, is Itunes compatible, and supports SNES EMULATION!!!!

    So I'm stoked as the fires of hell about my upcoming new phone. I get it tomorrow and it feels like it will never come. Does anyone else have this phone? Any tips or tricks I should know about? I'd love to hear any information you have to offer.

    I plan on being a regular fixture at this forum. I hope you can learn to appreciate me as I will appreciate you.
