Proof that AT&T isn't entirely to blame for iPhone's data problems (it sucks on Verizon too)

It is widely assumed that AT&T's network is pretty terrible, especially when it comes to handling data. I don't disagree. But I think there's more to it, and that it has to do with how the iPhone itself is made.

Read my hypothesis here.

Here is a little proof that data works just as terrible on Verizon as it did on AT&T.

I gave it about a minute to load, then killed Maps and tried again. I didn't even get that far after that.

However, I haven't dropped a call since I switched a couple days ago. The only cross-carrier problem I have is data not loading, especially in Maps.

I know people outside the U.S. don't seem to have the problems we have here, but there's got to be something going on with either the phone itself or how our networks are built here in the United States. Something isn't right.

As sophisticated as computer mice get, no mouse will ever get better than this

Several things about this mouse make it the greatest mouse ever made.

  1. The contour to the hand
  2. Traction (you might say traction is all software-based - not true)
  3. 4-way scroll wheel
  4. A single programmable side button

Many companies overdo it on features and design. This mouse happens to be the perfect balance of everything.

I've used it for the past several years and it's the best mouse I've ever used. So I just picked up two more, just in case they ever stop making them.
