Verizon iPhone

Sue and I are finally moving into the 21st century and getting a real smart phone. We currently are under contract with Verizon and since I've never had any trouble with their network, I'm looking to continue there. For Sue, we are planning to get an iPhone 4, since we already have pretty heavy buy-in for Apple products (including a LOT of iTunes music). As an added bonus, this will also means that people can once again send us text messages without feeling like they owe us a quarter every time they press SEND.

For myself though, the wait will be longer. I really want a Windows 7 phone, but you can only get those with T-Mobile and AT&T. I'm not really interested in switching to either of those networks (T-Mobile's network seems too small, and AT&T's network seems to...well...suck). Sprint and Verizon should have them by June. Stupid CDMA networks. Why can't they use GSM like every other network on Earth?

I have been a registered nurse for 17 years and I have started a blog about the government and the alarming fact that you and your families personal privacy is at risk. The new HIPAA 5010 law that passed this year sets legal standards for the confiscation and de-identification of yours and your families’ personal electronic health care records. There is now no legal reason for permission to be obtained from you in order for your personal health care records to be confiscated and distributed to clearinghouses for de-identification and used for research. Most health care providers do not know this and certainly most U.S. citizens are not aware of this. Follow my blog and learn how to take control and keep the government and other private agencies from accessing your private health information. Follow my blog at http://blogbur.blogspot.com
