So who’s gonna get an iPhone?

With the release date of the iPhone nearing—at least according to the rumours sections of our beloved geek news websites— I am wondering who will actually get one?

Personally, I hardly ever use a cell phone and I am not looking to have a steady relationship with “Raising the bar”, aka “We’re not happy ’til you’re not happy” wireless. I am much more interested in an iPhone without the phone—or at least without the GSM component. The thought of using it for my Skype or VOIP connections however is quite interesting. Using its 3G connectivity for mobile internet access (or access for my dated iBook) sound pretty good, too. So what I am describing is probably less the iPhone but a product that could be the iPhone, in my ideal world. At any rate, this means that I won’t be getting one anytime soon.

So my question is, once again, who is getting one, and how do you see yourself using it. “Buler? Buler? Buler?”

Sonnet Aria extreme PCMCIA wireless 802.11g card for sale

A friend of mine recently purchased a Sonnet Aria extreme PCMCIA wireless 802.11g card for his PowerBook. Unfortunately the PCMCIA slot in his machine gave out, while the card is still working just fine. He is looking to part with it for the best offer. Any takers? This card is Win compatible (98 SE, Me, 2000, XP). The three year warranty is still in place. If you are interested, please contact Tom @
